FAMILY MOVIE, "SONG OF THE SEA"
Great Barrington, 6:15-8:15pm

PG 93 minutes
Popcorn & drinks provided

Parents need to know that Song of the Sea is a beautifully hand-drawn animated adventure about Irish myths and legends, predominantly selkies -- creatures that live as humans on land and seals in the water. While Song of the Sea is less intense than the director's previous film, The Secret of Kells, it can still be intense and heartbreaking at times -- like when it seems the kids might not survive, that Ben will drown, or Saoirse will succumb to her mysterious illness. It's implied that their mother dies early in the film (right after baby Saoirse is born), and the Macha and her owls can be creepy and scary, particularly when they go after the kids. But in the end this is a powerful movie about the importance of sibling relationships, about accepting everything you feel (no matter how sad or scary), about literally and figuratively finding your voice, and about doing everything possible to protect the people you love.

 This program is at our Mason Library at 231 Main St. in Great Barrington. Please see our website at http://gblibraries.org for more details.
