The Secret of Kells

Discovery Family Film Club

A combination of great storytelling with truly exquisite animation, The Secret Of Kells was nominated for Best Animated Feature Oscar back in 2010 and was a runaway success at that same year’s Discovery Film Festival.

Young Brendan lives in a remote medieval village under constant threat of attack from barbarian hordes. But when a master book illuminator arrives with an ancient unfinished manuscript that offers both wisdom and mystical powers, Brendan’s life takes a whole new direction. To help complete the magical book, Brendan has to overcome his deepest fears on a dangerous quest that takes him into the enchanted forest where mythical creatures hide. It is here that he meets the fairy Aisling, a mysterious young wolf-girl, who helps him along the way. But with the barbarians closing in, will Brendan's determination and artistic vision manage to illuminate and halt the encroaching darkness?
