Movie Info

A feature documentary about the powerful allure of a universal myth, Mermaids immerses audiences in a world where fantasies come to life. Following the stories of five extraordinary tail-donning women who are part of a growing "mermaiding" subculture, audiences voyage between mermaid theme parks, conventions, tail-making studios, and deep into the ocean where transforming into the empowered icon of the mermaid is possible.

  • Weinstein treats her subjects with compassion and empathy, while offering curious audiences a nicely cut look at one of the world's little-known subcultures. Under the sea, it sounds good to me.

  • Weinstein finds poignancy in the tales of the tails and Catherine Lutes' stunning underwater photography just might send you out searching for a fish tail of your own.

  • We're given access to support systems and stories via place of absolute safety and trust in the hopes they may inspire other lost souls searching for unconditional acceptance.

  • Beautiful to watch, even as the content sometimes thins out in this otherwise gentle crowdpleaser of a film.

  • The members of the mermaid subculture are extremely committed. It's big fun watching them relish the activity of choosing their next outfits, stroking their tails lovingly.
