From Friday, July 10th – Find Out More

Song of the SeaYears after the death of their mother, Ben and his little sister Saoirse live with their dad in a lighthouse by the coast. Saoirse is a quiet child – in fact, she has never spoken a word, and Ben finds her incredibly frustrating. One night, she goes exploring in the beautiful white coat that used to belong to her mother, and when she approaches the sea, she discovers the mystical secret at the heart of who she is.

Ben and Saoirse’s grandmother becomes worried about the children, and takes them to live with her in the city. But Saoirse’s emotional connection to the sea proves difficult to overcome. Can she stay true to who she really is, or will the distance keep her from herself, and the mother she never knew?

This enchanting film has been nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards, and has received a lot of positive praise since its premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. With a really entrancing soundtrack that captures the spirit of this legend, Song of the Sea is utterly charming, and a real treat for cinema-goers.

 

 

AMHRÁN NA MARA
Ag Oscailt 10 Iuil 2015 – Tuilleadh A Fháil Amach

Blianta tar éis bás a mháthair, bíonn Ben agus a dheirfiúir beag Saoirse ina chónaí lena n-athair i dteach solais in aice an chósta. Is páiste ciúin í Saoirse. I ndáiríre, níl sí tar éis focal a rá ariamh, agus bíonn frustrachas ar Bhen faoi seo. Oíche amháin, téann sí ag féachaint thart, agus cóta álainn bán a mháthair uirthi. Nuair a thagann sí cois farraige, tagann sí ar an rúndiamhair a thugann míniú di faoi cé hí féin.
Tagann imní ar Mamó Ben agus Saoirse fúthu, agus tógann sí iad chun cónaí léi sa chathair. Ach ní féidir dlúthcheangal Saoirse leis an bhfarraige a shárú. An féidir léi fanacht dílis di féin, nó an scarfaidh an fhad í uaithí féin agus an máthair nach raibh aithne aici uirthi ariamh?
Bhí an scannán aoibhinn seo ainmnithe don scannán beochana is fearr ag Gradaim an Acadamh, agus tá neart moladh dearfach faighte ag an scannán ó bhí sé léirithe don chéad uair ag Féile Scannáin Idirnáisiúnta Toronto 2014. Le fuaimrian draíochtach a léiríonn go maith spiorad an finscéal, tá Amhrán na Mara íontach mealltach agus mar phléisiúir mór do dhaoine a théann chuig an bpictiúrlann.
