After a greedy land developer threatens to take over the family farm, eleven-year-old Arthur (Freddie Highmore) attempts to save the day by looking for a lost treasure. Along the way he discovers a secret land full of people so tiny, they are almost invisible--and that's when the real adventure begins in this family friendly, live-action / computer-animation mix.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Arthur and the Invisibles...
Although an overzealous land grabber threatens Arthur and his granny, the real adventures begin for the young boy when he is transported to the land of the Invisibles. Attacked by soldiers riding on mosquitoes and forced to fight with weapons in close combat, the Minimoys are also threatened with drowning. Scantily clad characters include the bar owner and the princess’s bare midriff. A budding love interest between the 10-year-old human and the tiny royal are minimal sexual issues. In the land of the large, an unlicensed Arthur runs the family car into a tree while Granny snoozes after she mistakenly takes an overdose of sleeping medicine. The script contains some name-calling and a few terms of Deity.
