10-year-old Fiona is sent to her grandparents in a small fishing village in Donegal, Ireland. He soon finds out a local legend that her ancestor married Selkie - a seal that can transform into a human. Years ago, her younger brother sailed into the sea in a boat-shaped cradle. Someone in the family believes the boy is being raised by seals. Then Fiona notices the naked boy on the desert island of Roan Inish and takes an active part in discovering the secret of Roan Inish.

The Secret of Roan Inish - fantastic movie. The term 'Best' is as you know a relative term. What you or I consider as the best may not even be in someone else's list. So the general rule is to proclaim the one which majority of the folks like as the best. Nevertheless, according to me the following can be regarded as some of the finest movie ever made. I sat for a long time after the end of The Secret of Roan Inish, reflecting on my thoughts. There are some scenes in this movie that I will remember them until I die. The direction is sublime. Excellent photos, tempo and editing. John Sayles proved that the whole film can hold the viewer's attention. Now every single person can watch this movie online for free here.... Show more
