If you love mythology, coming-of-age tales, subtle plots or beautiful animation, then Song of the Sea is the movie for you. From the same director of The Secret of Kells, this movie brings the same unexpected plot and stunning artwork of its predecessor. The plot centers around the melancholy Irish tale of the selkies, seal-woman whose life on land is brief to those that love them. It's a story of love and loss and the discovery of who actually loves you, tied with an epic journey that holds the fate of all faery in the balance. This magical story is enthralling for people of every age.
"Song of the Sea tells the story of Ben and his little sister Saoirse the last Seal-child who embark on a fantastic journey across a fading world of ancient legend and magic in an attempt to return to their home by the sea. The film takes inspiration from the mythological Selkies of Irish folklore, who live as seals in the sea but become humans on land. Song of the Sea features the voices of Brendan Gleeson, Fionnula Flanagan, David Rawle, Lisa Hannigan, Pat Shortt and Jon Kenny. Music is by composer Bruno Coulais and Irish band K la, both of whom previously collaborated on The Secret of Kells."
