The Secret World of Arrietty may be too gentle and meditative to be the studio's breakout hit in this country, but it's another sweet advance, and further evidence that the Ghibli secret must soon out.
As lovingly written as it is beautifully rendered.
It's a matinee treat for the very little ones, after all.
