For anyone who was glued to their TV set – or WILD ABOUT MOVIES – when the 2010 Oscar nominees were announced, the BIGGEST surprise was the nomination for “The Secret Of Kells” in the Best Animated Film category. “The Secret Of Kells,” not released in U.S. theaters before the Oscar nominees were announced, beat out mega grossing animated fare such as “Ice Age 3″ and “G-Force” and “Monsters Vs. Aliens,” to name just a few. In the movie “The Secret Of Kells,” young Brendan lives in a remote medieval outpost under siege from barbarian raids. But a new life of adventure beckons when a celebrated master illuminator arrives from foreign lands carrying an ancient but unfinished book, brimming with secret wisdom and powers. To help complete the magical book, Brendan has to overcome his deepest fears on a dangerous quest that takes him into the enchanted forest where mythical creatures hide. It is here that he meets the fairy Aisling, a mysterious young wolf-girl, who helps him along the way. But with the barbarians closing in, will Brendan’s determination and artistic vision illuminate the darkness and show that enlightenment is the best fortification against evil?
