One of the most beautiful films of the year, Cartoon Saloon‘s latest animated feature may be one of their best. Lovingly crafted to reflect moving tapestry, Wolfwalkers is a warm Irish fairy tale that anybody can enjoy. While the film’s story of a girl turning into a wolf may be simple, it’s filled with vibrant emotion, with all the heart and power of reading a fairytale for the first time as a kid. Whether you’re drawn strictly by the animation, the friendship between the two girls, or the bond between the father trying to raise her daughter, there is genuinely something for everybody in this film.
