The Secret of Kells

Dir: Tomm Moore
Ireland/France/Belgium 2009

With: Brendan Gleeson, Evan McGuire, Christen Mooney, Mick Lally
Certificate: PG

Twelve year-old Brendan lives in an abbey with his grumpy uncle and a motley group of monks. One day they are joined by the legendary illustrator Brother Aidan, who tells tales of Viking invaders and brings in his bag an amazing secret; the Book of Kells. This unique film tells the tale of how the sacred text was completed and survived to become one of Ireland’s national treasures. With animation which is nearly as beautiful as the book itself – especially when Brendan ventures beyond the town walls to meet naughty forest-sprite Aisling – The Secret of Kells’ recent Oscar nomination was richly deserved.


Showing with The Moonbird (dir: The Brothers McLeod).
