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!

This beautiful, magical, moving film has a style all its own. I recommend it for fans of Celtic mythology, fantasy, and/or animation.

A beautiful, dreamy story that is a little funny, a little sad and very sweet. Great for grown-ups too!

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

Song of the Sea is worth seeing at least once for the animation alone. Visually, it is stunning. I liked the musical score, too. There were parts of the story I liked a lot, but overall I felt the story was missing something or I missed something. It is a bit slow. Song of the Sea is rated PG for some mild peril, language and pipe smoking images. I do not recommend it for very young children since there are quite a few scenes I think they would find scary.
