In October, we'll be discussing The Secret of Roan Inish. Young Fiona lives with her grandparents in a small fishing village on the coast of Ireland where she takes an active role in unravelling the mysterious secrets of her family's history. Why did her family abandon their ancestral home on the island Fiona can see from the beach? What really happened to her baby brother who was lost at sea and never found? Did the Selkies who live on Roan Inish steal her brother away? With help from her cousin, Eamon, Fiona decides to visit the island in secret, solve the mystery, and heal her family. This 1994 John Sayles movie was the Official Selection at the Sundance Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival.
