Reviews
Mine: A story so quite so as to be invisible. This is very pretty, but nothing ever happens.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Gentle, charming tale of a girl who is sent to live with her grandparents on the west coast of Ireland and discovers the myths and magic that have affected her family. A ``small'' story to be sure, but it gradually works its spell on you, with an admirably unsentimental tone (perfectly embodied in solemn young Courtney), moody cinematography from Haskell Wexler, and remarkable ``performances'' from the seals and gulls that populate the film. Adapted from Rosalie Frye's novella The Secret of Ron Mor Skerry by director Sayles, who also edited.
