A bewitching animated fairytale for children and adults alike. With the Viking hordes approaching, the monks of Kells are forced to turn their attention from transcribing manuscripts to building barricades. The future of Ireland’s most cherished artifact, the Book of Kells, is in jeopardy and it falls to Brendan, young nephew of the abbot Cellach, to save the day. As the Vikings approach, revered illuminator Aidan arrives at the monastery and recruits Brendan to complete a series of dangerous, magical tasks. The Secret of Kells is an animated masterpiece that blends fantasy and Celtic mythology into a riot of color and detail.
