A new beautiful, hand-drawn 2D fantasy film from Hayao Miyazaki's Studio, Ghibli, hits theaters this weekend. Is this charming for both kids and kids at heart?
The creator of some of the most beautiful, visually inventive animated films of all time produces a new tale of tiny people living under the floor boards, and the boy who discovers them. The Secret World of Arrietty might be the most conventional and accessible film from the studio yet. With a voice cast that includes Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, is it the kind of charming 2D animated movie with appeal for adults and children that the US just doesn't make anymore? Or does it suffer from other problems? Dan, Jeff, and Alex peer into the secret world to find out.
