Held Over: “The Artist” Nominated for 10 Academy Awards; Opens February 17 “The Secret World of Arrietty” (G)

From Japan’s Studio Ghibli in conjunction with Disney, comes “The Secret World of Arrietty”. The Clock family are four-inch-tall people who live anonymously in another family’s residence, borrowing simple items to make their home. Arrietty, a tiny but tenacious 14-year-old, lives with her parents in the recesses of a suburban garden home, unbeknownst to the homeowner and her housekeeper. Like all little people, Arrietty remains hidden from view, except during occasional covert ventures beyond the floorboards to ” borrow” scrap supplies like sugar cubes from her human hosts. But when 12-year-old Shawn, a human boy who comes to stay in the home, discovers his mysterious housemate one evening, a secret friendship blossoms. A delightful story for all ages! trailer
