Song of the Sea  (2014)


Ancient Irish legends come alive with gorgeous, watercolor-like animation in this gently lyric story of a fantastic journey across Ireland.  When big brother Ben realizes his little sister Saoirse is the last of the mythic Selkies—seals who can live as humans—it’s up to the two of them to return to the sea and rescue the magical creatures of Irish folklore.
