Song of the Sea

Play Trailer

This Oscar-nominated, hand-drawn animation is truly a wonder to behold. It tells the story of Ben and his little sister Saoirse, whom they discover is a ‘kelpie,’ someone blessed with the ability to change into a seal. While deeply rooted in ancient Celtic folk tales, myths and magic, it’s also a very familiar, entirely relatable story focusing on both the fragility and the strength of familial bonds. From the animator behind The Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea is a complete delight:a funny, life-affirming fantasy adventure sure to enchant audiences young and old.

The recommended minimum age for this film is 7.
