Based on Mary Norton’s beloved novels that have delighted generations, The Borrowers is a thrilling, fun-filled adventure through the exciting world of the little people who live under our floorboards.
Arrietty Clock (Aisling Loftus, Mr. Selfridge) is a head-strong teenage Borrower whose parents, Pod (Christopher Eccleston, Doctor Who) and Homily (Sharon Horgan, Dead Boss), are terrified of the 'Human Beans' who live above them. Desperate for freedom and adventure, Arrietty sneaks out one night and befriends a lonely boy who lives upstairs. But Arrietty's adventure inadvertently reveals her family's existence to the scheming scientist Professor Mildeye (Stephen Fry, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug), forcing them to go on the run into the big bad world.
Enlisting the help of Spiller (Robert Sheehan, Misfits), a leather-jacketed Tearaway with a roguish glint in his eye, Arrietty embarks on a daring mission to outsmart Mildeye. Can the Clock family return to their home in time for Christmas?
