Summary, etc.:
The Borrowers (1997): The miniature Clock family has lived with the Lenders for years...the human "beans" just don't know it. Little things keep disappearing and the "Beans" can't figure out that the Clocks are simply "borrowing household items for their own home within the walls." When the evil, scheming lawyer Ocious P. Potter tries to evict the Lenders from their happy home, the Borrowers try to stop him with a little ingenuity. Suddenly, the toaster's a catapult, the measuring tape is an elevator, the dental floss is a backpack, and the lawyer is about to meet his match.
The Borrowers (2011): Arrietty Clock is a head-strong teenage Borrower whose parents, Pod and Homily, are terrified of the 'Human Beans' who live above them. Desperate for freedom and adventure, Arrietty sneaks out one night and befriends a lonely boy who lives upstairs. But Arrietty's adventure inadvertently reveals her family's existence to the scheming scientist Professor Mildeye, forcing them to go on the run into the big bad world.
