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.

    This film really intrigued me since it wasn't just songs it was mostly an adventure from enemy to best friend between brother and sister. It also had lots of meanings like letting your emotions make your life a little bit more interesting and a lot more fun.

    The things that I really liked were:
    The meanings inside were more than I could think.
    The animation for the film was actually pretty good.
    That's all I liked about the film which is nearly all of it.

    I didn't really dislike or hate anything since the film was so good

    To conclude this film I would like to say that it would be a perfect family film.
