We have a kid-friendly movie!

February 20, 2012

It's such a rarity that we have a fun G-rated film for kids that I thought I'd make a special announcement.
We just opened Studio Ghibli's The Secret World of Arrietty, based on Mary Norton's novel The Borrowers. It's about a young girl Arrietty and the everyday adventure of her life as a two-inch-high borrower and her friendship with a visiting (full-size) boy.
It's a little more mature than the screamtastic Ponyo, yet not a war movie like Princess Mononoke and NausicaƤ.

Of course, it's not just for kids. I think anyone will enjoy this beautifully-drawn tiny adventure.
It'll be here till February 29. See it if you can.
If you're hungry for more Studio Ghibli, 9th Street Video (our neighbors) have a great Miyazaki section.
