After the disappearance of her mother when she was a baby, 4-year old Saoirse, who lives on a small island with her father and older brother Ben, discovers a magical coat that turns her into a seal-like creature called a Selkie. Having spent the night swimming with the seals, Saoirse is found washed up on the shore by her Granny who decides she and Ben would be safer living in the city. One Halloween night, longing to return home, Saoirse awakens some Faerie creatures, leading the two children on a weird and wonderful journey back home. Beautifully drawn with a bewitching soundtrack, this is an enchanting feast for the eyes and a heart-felt celebration of traditional Gaelic storytelling and folktales.

    It's was really good a bit sad very adventurous these are my reasons why I enjoyed it

    It was really good

    Lots of adventure

    Quiet sad by the way I don't like sad

    And it had seals in

    I think my freind Eunice would like to see it because she loves seals

    So I gave the film five stars

    I recommend this highly to any seal lovers

    I liked the film because even though it wasn't real it felt real.I found it surprising that the girl could not speak until she had her coat on.
