The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September of 2014 and had a limited release in North America in December of 2014. If you enjoyed director Tomm Moore’s previous animated film The Secret of Kells – which was also nominated for an Academy Award – then you’re sure to enjoy Song of the Sea with its similar animation style and mystical Celtic storyline.
So what’s Song of the Sea about?
When Saoirse and Ben’s mother mysteriously disappears into the ocean, the two children go on an epic journey to find out the truth about her and, in the process, discover mystical secrets about both their mother and Saoirse herself. Irish actor Brendan Gleeson (Mad-Eye Moody from the Harry Potter film series) joins Moore again to provide the voice of the sea deity Mac Lir.
