5 REASONS TO WATCH ‘THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY’

“It’s funny how each day you wake up and never really know if it will be one that will change your life forever” – Shō

The Secret World of Arrietty is a 2010 Studio Ghibli fantasy film. Directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, this film is based upon the novel The Borrowers by Mary Norton. The film tells the story of a family of tiny people (known as ‘borrowers’) who secretly live within the walls of households, borrowing items from humans in order to survive. One day though, the borrower Arrietty meets Shō, a sick human boy resting in the house before his heart surgery in a few days, and a friendship forms between the two of them

  1. It doesn’t shy away from themes like death and uncertainty. Instead, throughout the film they are discussed in a way that makes them seem not quite as frightening as they’re often made out to be

  2. However, the movie is actually quite sweet

  3. The characters are quite relatable. For example, Arrietty is smart, brave, fairly stubborn and very family-orientated

  4. The visuals in this movie are so good! There is so much detail!

  5. Other themes that are explored throughout this film include bravery and perseverance. And with the main characters being children with their own unique struggles and opinions, this film is well… kind of refreshing and even to a certain degree, validating

    When i was little i never really enjoyed the story of the borrowers. Something tells me is probably enjoy it more now, but i haven’t been able to bring myself to rewatch anything. This maybe a good way to revisit the story for me.

    It’s a beautiful movie and the OST is gorgeous and definitely should be heard 💞
    I liked Arriety more than Ponyo, and I consider it a quality movie that is under appreciated, so it’s nice to see a feature for it 👌
