The Borrowers are a tiny race of people who live hidden away from the "Beings" meaning human kind. and Arrietty is the oldest girl in a family of Borrowers that live in an old house. The little family has always followed the rules, but Arrietty is restless, seeking to know more, and winds up being at first captured then befriended by a young boy who seeks to help them when their home is threatened by a nefarious lawyer, Ocious P. Potter, who seeks to gain their property for a high rise he intends to build. The Borrowers have the Will and they strive to keep it safe as Potter scours the house in search of it, and it places Arrietty and her family in danger and the Borrowers have to band together to save themselves, and confront the evil lawyer. John Goodman shines whether he plays a villain, or not and here, he is both sinister and yet hilarious as Ocious P. Potter. Look to see Hugh Laurie as a police officer. Do they save the house? You'll have to see.
