The Clock family are four-inch-tall people who live anonymously in another family's residence, borrowing simple items to make their home. Life changes for the Clocks when their teenage daughter, Arrietty, is discovered.
Nervous at the idea of directing the film himself, Hiromasa Yonebayashi would initially always seek Hayao Miyazaki's advice and opinions. He eventually realized he was on a journey he should face alone when the time came to draw the storyboard, and Miyazaki congratulated him for it.
I have to go. When is your operation?
Shô: The day after tomorrow. I'm going to be okay. You gave me the courage to live.
Arietty: For luck.
Arietty: You protected me after all.
Arietty: I hope you have the best life ever. Goodbye.
Shô: Arrietty, you're a part of me...
In one scene Shon is walking and wearing what looks like sandals.As he continues walking he then appears to be barefoot and then suddenly is seen wearing slippers.
A different, British English dub was recorded for the United Kingdom and Ireland release of the film (under the title "Arrietty"), with the voices of Saoirse Ronan as Arrietty, Tom Holland as Shô and Mark Strong, Olivia Coleman, Phyllida Law and Geraldine McEwan.
