From IMDb it says

Liesel arrives having just stolen her first book

Does arrives mean to achieve an aim here? (I found this in meaning in this online dictionary as an informal way of saying it)


Not in this case, no. With extra context:

...she is taken at age 9 to live with a foster family in a German working-class neighborhood. Liesel arrives having just stolen her first book...

In this case, "arrives" is meant literally: "to reach a place". Liesel arrives at her new home, just after stealing a book.
