I did watch The Secret of Kells today, finally, so that is one good thing. It was beautiful, and I thought it was really interesting how the animation was built around shape and color rather than perspective and line--most of the movie is flat, "like a medieval manuscript," according to the director.

Oh, I watched that over the summer on my friend's tiny laptop screen and I thought it was stunning, and wonderful, and even did a fair job of presenting an accurate portrait of 9th century Ireland. I need to see it again, on a big-screen TV. :)

Isn't it gorgeous? I took a little while to get used to the style (or my eyes did, anyway), but I loved it.

I watched the previews. It looks very pretty. I might get it for the Grandgirls.

It does have its dark moments (Viking attack!), but nothing is explicit.
