A Shine of Rainbows - The Movie
Tomas, a shy eight-year-old orphan, is adopted by Maire McDonald, a beautiful woman bursting with life. She brings him home to Corrie, a remote island off the coast of Ireland, where he meets Alec, her reticent husband, who cannot hide his disappointment.
Maire shares with Tomas the classic and whimsical folklore of the island, the secret of the seals, and other wonders; mainly, that you can find hope anywhere if you really look. In this rugged and enchanting world, Tomas thrives and Alec begins to see in Tomas what Maire always has. But when tragedy strikes, Tomas is faced with his greatest challenge. He'll lose everything unless he can find and share the hope that's inside of him.

This was one of the best movies I've ever seen. It was heartwarming and so uplifting. The characters were very believable and the cinematography was breathtaking.
In an age when so many movies are a waste of time, this one truly stood out! I would highly recommend it!!

A remarkable movie... One day I will travel to Ireland and this movie just made me want to do it even more. Such a wonderful, heartfelt family movie. Made me laugh and cry. Please keep making movies like this one. It was a breath of fresh air.

This was a very good movie but I was very disappointed in all the "new age" things in it. If you are a Christian that avoids the culture's way of thinking, you may want to avoid this movie.
"Seals talk to the dead"
"Talk to seals about your heart secrets"
It is obvious that this is not a "Christ-based" movie.

Great movie! A real sensitive view of a boy being adopted and learning to love the outdoors.
