Animated Drama: A young, aspiring wolf hunter of the 17th century finds herself immersed in the world of a pack of wolves and the human wolfwalkers who lead them.

It's 1650 and young Robyn Goodfellowe (voice of HONOR KNEAFSEY) and her widowed father Bill (voice of SEAN BEAN) have moved from England to the fortressed town of Kilkenny, Ireland. There, the militant leader, Lord Protector (voice of SIMON McBURNEY), has enlisted Bill to hunt down and kill all the local wolves so that the woodcutters can clear the local forest to allow farmers to use the land. Despite not being allowed outside the gated walls, Robyn envisions herself as a wolf hunter like her father and desires to join him on the hunt.

Breaking his rules, she one day sneaks out with her pet hawk, Merlin, ends up in the forest, and encounters some wolves. During a melee at a local farm, she ends up accidentally shooting Merlin with her crossbow, but before she can get to him, a feral-like girl, Mebh Óg MacTíre (voice of EVA WHITTAKER), scampers out, grabs the bird, and disappears back into the forest.

Despite her father taking her back into the protection of the walled town, Robyn sneaks out again and encounters Mebh, only to learn that she's a wolfwalker -- a human while awake, but the spirit of a wolf while asleep. Initially enemies, the two girls become friends, with Mebh explaining that her mother -- seen asleep in human form as Moll (voice of MARIA DOYLE KENNEDY) -- is out trying to find them a new and safe home, but hasn't been seen in a long time.

From that point on, Robyn does what she can to protect her new friend and her wolves, all while Lord Protector puts increased pressure on Bill to do his job and kill the wolves as soon as possible.

It's an animated film, so that will certainly be of interest to some kids (but this isn't the usual sort of film - from Pixar, Disney, etc. - that's usually a big draw).
For sequences of violence and peril, scary images, some thematic elements, and brief language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
