The Secret of Kells - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Magic, fantasy, and Celtic mythology come together in a riot of color and detail that dazzle the eyes, in this sweeping story about the power of imagination and faith to carry humanity through dark times. Young Brendan lives in the Abbey of Kells, a remote medieval outpost under siege from raiding barbarians. One day a celebrated master illuminator arrives from foreign lands carrying an ancient but unfinished book, brimming with secret wisdom and powers. 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 illuminate the darkness and show that enlightenment is the best fortification against evil?

MOVIE REVIEW

The Oscar-nominated animated film The Secret of Kells comes to DVD next Tuesday, bringing with it a dazzling spectacle of unique animation and creativity. Oh, and some bonus features. The movie is imaginative and well-drawn, but not as captivating or engaging as expected.
