Underrated Movie #268 ~ The Secret of Roan Inish

The Secret of Roan Inish

Buy from Amazon.com

When 10-year-old Fiona (Jeni Courtney) learns how her ancestors came to leave the island of the seals, Roan Inish, she discovers there may be magic afoot in her family tree, in writer-director John Sayles’ (Matewan, Eight Men Out) fable for all ages. This Celtic fairy tale — about folkloric, aquatic creatures that are half human and half seal — includes breathtaking images of Ireland’s coastline and full commentary by Sayles. (Netflix) My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars. Internet Movie Database

About Underrated Movies
My name is Eric and I created this blog for the simple reason that I love to find hidden gems that go under the radar. So you can get an idea of my tastes, my favorite all-time movies include (among many others) Aliens (plural), Braveheart, The Shawshank Redemption, Field of Dreams, Misery, Mississippi Burning, The Untouchables, Die Hard, and Superman: The Movie. I have a massive list of over 250 underrated, under-appreciated, and/or overlooked movies, and I am always on the lookout for more. I will occasionally update this blog with a new selection. Each entry has links to the Internet Movie Database, a top critic’s review of the movie, Netflix, a link to the trailer, and a link to purchase and/or watch the movie instantly on Amazon. I would earn a small commission if you buy on Amazon after clicking my link, so consider making a purchase if you enjoy this blog.
