Song of the Sea follows the story of a 10-year-old Irish boy named Ben who discovers that his mute sister Saoirse, whom he blames for the apparent death of his mother, is a selkie who has to free faerie creatures from the Celtic goddess Macha. The film is the second installment in director and co-producer Tomm Moore’s “Irish Folklore Trilogy”, following his previous film The Secret of Kells (2009) and preceding the film Wolfwalkers (2020). Carlos Aguilar, writing in the Toronto Review, said of the film: “Watching Song of the Sea it is easy to assert that this is one of the most blissfully beautiful animated films ever made. It is a gem beaming with awe-inspiring, heartwarming magic”.
