This is a animated feature is distributed by Disney but do not make the mistake of thinking this is a Disney Movie. It is a Studio Ghibli movie. The same people who brought you such classics as Princess Mononoke and Ponyo. That means that the adult themes in the movie are not directed at your little crumb cruncher. They are directed at you the adult. Also, unlike Disney Movies, there is no comedic relief in the form on an anthropomorphized animal. This is a story of the weight of loneliness, of dealing with the hand of cards fate has dealt you even when it's total shit, and how we all need someone to connect with. The movie did not feel overlong despite it's leisurely pace. The music, mostly Celtic inspired, outside of one garbage pop tune in the end credits, was very good. I spent an enjoyable afternoon with the charming Borrowers.
