Wolfwalkers (PG)

Family Film Club

Two animated girls sit on a branch

After two sell out screenings in 2021, we couldn’t resist just one more of this sumptuous animation from the makers of The Breadwinner and Song of the Sea.

Wolfwalkers tells the tale of a remote town in 17th century Ireland where hunter Bill Goodfellowe (Sean Bean) and his daughter Robyn (Honor Kneafsey) are sent to deal with increasing wolf attacks. As her father sees to his duties, Robyn is left feeling isolated in a town that doesn't really want her. One day she follows her father into the woods and discovers that the legend spoken in town of the infamous wolfwalkers is true...

The film is almost entirely created with mesmerising and beautiful hand-drawn animation, with deep and striking colours. It's a lyrical adventure with a strong and rhythmic heartbeat throughout.

Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult. If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count.
