Movie Info

Tim Roth stars in this suburban tale with an otherworldly twist as Skellig, a seemingly weakened bird-like angel who young Michael finds living in a shed at the far end of his parent's garden. Distraught by the news of his baby sister's congenital heart problems, Michael is in need of a friend, and Skellig may be the unlikely soul to fulfill that duty. Funny, fantastic, and rooted in reality, this unconventional family-friendly mystery-fantasy is based on an award-winning novel by David Almond and co-stars John Simm (Doctor Who), Kelly Macdonald (Transpotting), and Bill Milner as Michael.

I can't help but feel if the film hadn't been quite so reverent to its source material, it could have fashioned a more distinctive end-result.

Fantasy mixes with emotionally intense family drama.

Even though I haven't had the honor of reading his book, I'm fairly sure Almond deserves an apology for this film.
