SONG OF THE SEA
OPENS DECEMBER 19, 2014!
From the director of the Oscar-nominated The Secret of Kells comes Song of the Sea, the story of Ben and his little sister Saoirse - the last Seal-child - who embark on a 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. Recommended for ages 5 to adult.
