10-year-old Fiona is sent to live with her grandparents in a small fishing village in Donegal, Ireland. She soon learns the local legend that an ancestor of hers married a Selkie - a seal who can turn into a human. Years earlier, her baby brother washed out to sea in a cradle shaped like a boat; someone in the family believes the boy is being raised by the seals. Then Fiona catches sight of a naked little boy on the abandoned Isle of Roan Inish and takes an active role in uncovering the secret of Roan Inish.Written by

When Fiona first meets her grandfather the ticket pinned to her jacket is in good condition. The next scene, right before her grandfather lifts her over the fence, the ticket has a large crease through the middle and is crumpled on the bottom. See more »

My kids want to watch this one over and over. They love the accents as well as the magical story. It's just as terrific for adults - with lovely landscapes, beautiful music and fine acting. Highly recommended for families weary of the usual garbage marketed to kids.
