The latest animated adventure from Japan’s Studio Ghibli, who brought us PONYO, SPIRITED AWAY and MY NEIGHBOUR TOTORO, ARRIETTY is a magical riff on British writer Mary Norton’s cherished novel The Borrowers.

In present-day suburban Tokyo, the scurry of tiny footsteps echoes underneath the floorboards of a sprawling mansion.

Fourteen-year-old Arrietty has lived in the recesses of this grand manor all her life, totally unbeknown to the two old ladies who occupy it.

Arrietty and her diminutive family survive by ‘borrowing’ everyday items from their inadvertent landlords.

When 12-year-old Sho moves into the mansion while awaiting medical treatment at a clinic in the city, Arrietty starts to see humans in a different light.

Disregarding her parents' advice, she announces herself to Sho and a friendship sparks into life.

Meet at 7.30pm in Circus Circus. It gets busy in there, so if you are new you will need to take my mobile number, 07917684379. We will go across to the Duke of Yorks around 8.20pm to take our seats.
