Set in Kilkenny, Ireland in the 17th century, during a time of superstition and magic, when wolves are seen as demonic and nature an evil to be tamed, a young apprentice hunter comes to Ireland with her father to wipe out the last pack. But when she saves a wild native girl, their friendship leads her to discover the world of the Wolfwalkers and transform her into the very thing her father is tasked to destroy. This third installment in Tomm Moore’s “Irish Folklore” trilogy is just as magical and transporting as his similarly Oscar nominated The Secret of the Kells and Song of the Sea.
“It’s glorious, gorgeous, and more than a little profound.” – Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
