Synopsis

This enchanting Oscar-nominated animation is a triumph of innovative hand-drawn techniques. The story begins in mediaeval Ireland, where 12-year-old Brendan has come to live with his uncle, the Abbot Cellach, in his monastery. When new monk Aidan takes refuge with them after Vikings have ransacked his monastery, Brendan becomes fascinated by an unfinished illuminated manuscript Aidan has brought with him - the Book of Kells. However, it's not long before invaders also threaten their walls and it's up to Brendan to protect the magical book and seek the enchanted crystal which will complete it.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
