Editor's Note
Children's author Mary Norton's storybook creations, the four-inch-tall family of "borrowers" who live among humans and co-opt their possessions, get a first-rate big-screen translation. When a crooked lawyer (a gleefully over-the-top John Goodman) takes over the Lender family's house, he's got to reckon with the "borrowers" therein, who launch a campaign to oust the invader and restore the home to its rightful tenants.
