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.

I loved every minute of this brilliant film! The animation, music, story, and characters are absolutely stunning! It's refreshing to see such masterpieces being produced, something that both adults and children can enjoy. I also love all the Celtic mysticism, and the usage of Irish Gaelic. Beautiful.

Beautiful animation with a featured song that stuck in my head for days....sung beautifully by the voice of Saoirse. Loved the imaginative way Saoirse was transformed from selkie and back to human....magical. Voice of Ben was just right. Lovely fairy tale for both adults and kids.

Characters like Lug, Spud, & Mossy, the Great Seanchaí, Macha the Owl Witch, Saoirse, who needs her selkie coat to sing & save the fairy world, and her big brother Ben & his brave and loyal dog, Chu, are reminiscent of the Wizard of Oz. Beautiful hand-drawn artwork versus computer-generated images. Academy-Award nominated family film is worth watching!

The animation and music are the only reason I would recommend seeing this movie. This movie will make you cry. Does not sugar coat the real emotional hurt a family goes through once a family member is gone
