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)
