White Bastille Day Greeting Photo Collage(3)

official Summary: “Arrietty, a tiny but tenacious 14-year-old, lives with her parents in the recesses of a suburban garden home, unbeknownst to the homeowner and her housekeeper. Like all little people, Arrietty remains hidden from view, except during occasional covert ventures beyond the floorboards to “borrow” scrap supplies like sugar cubes from her human hosts. But when 12-year-old Shawn, a human boy who comes to stay in the home, discovers his mysterious housemate one evening, a secret friendship blossoms. If discovered, their relationship could drive Arrietty’s family from the home and straight into danger” via movieweb

Our Pairing:  Avinyó 2012 Cava Reserva Brut. The Secrete world of Arrietty is delicious, as most offerings from Studio Ghibli you’ll watch and instantly crave a world with lush greens and peaceful summers. A vivid and vibrant world that doesn’t skip on emotion this film isn’t heavy on action and it’s better for it. Arrietty’s journey from hidden borrower to befriending her first human friend in Shawn voiced by David Henrie is a treat to watch. The cinematography will make you long for nature and the story long for a lost friend. Pairs perfect with the meditative earthy tones of Avinyó 2012 Cava.

Our Rating:  Four star/ Sparkling anime: Now we’re getting fancy. We can’t really afford you . That rare anime that speaks to us. The studio Ghibli of wines
