The Department of Modern Languages and Comparative Literature, The Center for Study of Asia, the Geddes Language Center, and the Japanese House presents The Borrower Arrietty - Yonebayashi Hiromasa's film about Arrietty (Bridgit Mendler), a tiny, but tenacious 14-year-old, who lives with her parents (Will Arnett and Amy Poehler) in the recesses of a suburban garden home, unbeknownst to the homeowner and her housekeeper (Carol Burnett). Like all little people, Arrietty (AIR-ee-ett-ee) remains hidden from view, except during occasional covert ventures beyond the floorboards to “borrow” scrap supplies like sugar cubes from her human hosts.
Location:
Boston University College of Arts and Sciences, 725 Commonwealth Ave, Room 537C
