In Memory of Actress Kirin Kiki
Discover the debut film, The Secret World of Arrietty, from Academy Award®-nominated director Hiromasa Yonebayashi (When Marnie Was There) in this gorgeous adaption of The Borrowers, one of the most popular children’s books of all time. This is one of the few animated films Actor Kirin Kiki took on, where she voiced Haru, one of the housekeepers of the human family. In a secret world hidden beneath the floorboards, little people called “Borrowers” live quietly among us. When tenacious and tiny Arrietty is discovered by Shawn, a human boy, their secret and forbidden friendship blossoms into an extraordinary adventure.
