ya’ll need to see this movie. the animation is absolutely GORGEOUS! it looks like a moving tapestry or even an illuminated page! And the theme about the power of the pen, the power of books, is something tumblr will really appreciate. Yes, it’s an Irish movie, but the dialogue is in English their accents aren’t so strong that you can’t understand them (LOL i’m american). the story is beautifully touching and although there is an element of magic, there are some REALLY realistic themes as well. and there’s so much gray area to this movie - it’s not all black and white. a really beautiful film that needs more recognition, especially on tumblr.
if you want to check it out, it’s on Netflix and Hulu.
