This animated Irish fable was very quietly nominated for an Academy Award in 2010. It concerns Brendan, a young boy living in a remote medieval abbey in Ireland. He joins up with a monk to help complete a magical book of worldly wisdom—a quest that takes him outside the sheltering walls of the abbey and into contact with a mysterious fairy girl. Enchanting and beautifully illustrated.See also:I Like to Watch (Instantly): Ponyo, The Secret of Kells (07/17/2011). 75 minutes PG.
