"Following his debut feature 'The Secret of Kells', animation wunderkind Tomm Moore scores a second Oscar nomination with 'Song of the Sea', a modern fairy tale which stays true to the celebrated 2D animation style of Cartoon Saloon with a beautiful story for the whole family.
The film tells the story of Ben and his little sister Saoirse – the last Seal-child – who embark on a fantastic journey back to their home by the Sea, across a fading world of ancient Irish legends and magic, a world that needs Saoirse to find her voice and sing the ‘Song of the Sea’ to save all of fairy kind from being lost forever.

"Sooner rather than later we will be talking about Tomm Moore with the same reverence and adoration as we do now about Miyazaki. This is one of the most blissfully beautiful animated films ever made." – INDIEWIRE
