Every week EW’s Dalton Ross and his wife, writer Christina Kelly, have a healthy discussion about what movie they should watch with their two children (Dale, 12, and Violet, 9) that weekend. I cry every time I watch Roan Inish, which, since I own it on VHS, has been a lot of tears over many years. Now they’ll make their cases publicly and you’ll get to vote on the choices and decide how the Ross family will be spending part of their weekend. This beautiful film, which was directed by John Sayles, is a fairytale set in Western Ireland in the 1940s. Of course, I cry at every family movie night, either because something touches my soul, or out of frustration with my husband’s taste in movies. In this case, an alien species has been transfixed by the old sci-fi TV show Galaxy Quest, and while the cast thinks they are off to entertain some crazy diehard fans, instead they become embroiled in an intergalactic slugfest.
A young girl named Fiona is sent to live with her grandparents, exiles from an island that they were forced to evacuate. Last week, Dalton’s pick of ‘Bugsy Malone’ was on the receiving end of a big pie in the face, losing to ‘Where The Wild Things Are.


They miss their simple life on the island, where they fished, collected seaweed and, legend has it, coexisted with mythical half-seal, half-human creatures called selkies.
Dale has not yet seen it, but I think he will enjoy it, and if he doesn’t enjoy it, too bad.
I could tell you more about why this movie deserves to win, but I don’t need to, because you already know it does.
The selkies stole Fiona’s baby brother when her family left the island, and no one has ever recovered from the loss. He has to take one for the team every now and then, just like I did Sunday night watching the execrable Standing Ovation with my daughter. And to those of you who think Galaxy Quest might not have what it takes to topple an Irish seal-woman, I leave you with the immortal words of Commander Peter Quincy Taggart: “Never give up.
Fiona secretly goes back to the island to fix up their old thatched-roof cottage, and she gets a wonderful surprise. For another, it stars lots of actors they know from other movies they’ve seen (Look, it’s Severus Snape with a fake alien brain!


Based on the Irish legend of the Selkies, Song of the Sea tells the story of the last seal-child, Saoirse, and her brother Ben, who go on an epic journey to save the world of magic and discover the secrets of their past. Pursued by the owl witch Macha and a host of ancient and mythical creatures, Saoirse and Ben race against time to awaken Saoirse’s powers and keep the spirit world from disappearing forever.
I struggle with embracing the second claim for myself, because I love both of them so much. A grateful resident of Wyoming, he spends his free time exploring the beautiful Wind River Mountains, keeping track of his (currently) seven sons, being amazed by his (currently) lone daughter, and thanking his lucky stars for Netflix.
