Small is beautiful

What is it they say? Small is beautiful. That’s certainly the case for Studio Ghibli’s latest.

Adapted from Mary Norton’s The Borrowers, this timeless tale about little people living under the floorboards is as graceful as anything the studio has ever produced.

Former Ghibli animator Hiromasa Yonebayashi directs, with head honcho Hayao Miyazaki on script duties and Saoirse Ronan giving voice to the titular inch-high heroine.

Blending classic Ghibli themes – family, environment – with some awe-inducing animation, it’s a miniature-piece in more ways than one.
