artisanal film reviews | by maryann johanson

Song of the Sea movie rating: green light

Song of the Sea green light

Prettily animated family adventure infused with Irish folklore and traditional Celtic design makes for a change of pace from slick Hollywood cartoons.
I’m “biast” (pro): enjoyed Tomm Moore’s previous film, The Secret of Kells

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

(My Ratings posts are a quick way for me to share my reaction to a film. This post will be updated if/when I ever write a review. Feel free to discuss the movie in depth in the comments section.)


See also my #WhereAreTheWomen rating of Song of the Sea for its representation of girls and women.


green light 3.5 stars
