SONG OF THE SEA
Sunday, February 26
Directed by Tomm Moore
Approx. 93 min. DCP.
“Blends Celtic legends, bravura design and animation, and intelligent storytelling that understands but never patronizes young viewers, to create an exquisite and rewarding work. In a vaguely 20th-century Ireland, pugnacious young Ben lives on a remote island with his lonely lighthouse-keeper father and six-year-old kid sister Saoirse, who, like the children’s lost mother, is a half-human, half-seal selkie.” – Leslie Felperin, The Guardian. Rated PG for some mild peril, language and pipe smoking images.
“Moves delicately but purposefully from pain to contentment and from anger to love.”
– Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
