The Borrowers was the high-profile modern adaptation of the classic novel starring Sharon Horgan and Christopher Ecclestone as Ma and Pa Borrower and Victoria Wood as the full-size Grandmother trying to entrap one of them. Her young Grandson secretly befriends teen Borrower Arietty, who decides it’s time to explore the world. Mild peril arrives in the form of Stephen Fry as an academic who believes in little people and wants one as a specimen.
