[The film] pulses with feeling for childhood and nature and develops a surprising amount of suspense considering it takes place around a single suburban home. Full Review
Studio Ghibli's adaptation of Arrietty's tale feels oddly traditional. Full Review

Freakin Awesome Network
The fresh and simple story will win its share of young fans, though it lacks the disturbing adult elements might have attracted older audiences. Full Review
[A] charming, absorbing story, set in a vividly realised drawn world.
Sight and Sound
What the studio does, brilliantly, is preserve a hand-drawn look and feel in its work....Studio Ghibli and ARRIETTY have a way of taking you where you may not expect...

3.5 stars out of 5 -- [T]his beautifully rendered, almost old-fashioned version is a gem. It's a wonderfully funny and richly rewarding movie for the whole family...
A family of miniature people find their existence threatened due to a forbidden friendship in this Studio Ghibli adaptation of author Mary Norton's beloved children's book THE BORROWERS. Headstrong and full of energy, 14-year-old Arrietty (voice of Bridgit Mendler) is just like any other adolescent girl -- except for the fact that she's only a few inches tall. Arrietty and her family are Borrowers: a race of tiny people who live among the regular-size humans undetected, and only emerge to scrounge miniscule amounts of essential living supplies from well-stocked cupboards and cabinets. Contact with the Borrowers' normal-size counterparts is strictly forbidden, but when Arrietty attempts to help her father stock up on necessities and meets 12-year-old Shawn (voice of David Henrie), the pair develop an unlikely bond. Shawn has come to live with his great aunt, and should she find out about the Borrowers, it would be disastrous for Arrietty and her family. But perhaps by working together, Shawn and Arrietty can figure out a way for the Borrowers and humans to live together in harmony.
