Last night my 19-year-old son said, 'Mom, come watch this movie with me. It gets me every time.' So I did. I especially enjoyed seeing Hume Cronin again. His character was sweet, gently teasing Amanda to let go of her fear and to find a smile and a friend. I also liked the fact that these were not obviously 'mer-people' -- no tails or scales. The ending was happy-sweet-sad. This is a story your whole family can enjoy together. We did! (How many movies can you say that about these days?)

After reading a negative review of "Sea People" on Internet Movie Database, I was a little hesitant to rent the movie. But after two or so viewings I'm glad I did, because I would have missed out on a mystical, touching family film.
Director Victor Sarin chose to avoid special effects such as a mermaid tail (The McRaes cleverly quip that only the Florida mermaids have those) in favour of explaining the origins of seapeople as being human.
"Sea People" never seems to drift beyond the realms of the possible. It tenderly expresses a girl's passion for life and the sea and her relationship with an elderly couple that have a lot to teach her in return for her friendship.
The cast did a fantastic job, especially Hume Cronyn. It was a pleasant surprise to see that the film was shot in Nova Scotia and that the cast is entirely Canadian (look for a guest appearance at the end from Cedric Smith).

This delightful video put smiles onto the face of our 4th grade son. I loved it for the wonderful humor which was witty and demeaning to no one. It is a current, upbeat film for the family, being intelligent, sensitive, and imaginative. We stretched out bedtime so we could watch it through to the end. Highly recommended!

I first saw Sea People on a movie channel. I didn't see the very beginning, but realized that this was a one of a kind movie and watched the rest of it. At that time, I didn't think about ordering it. Several months later, I caught it again on a movie channel. Still didn't catch the beginning, but watched the rest of it. This time, I had to try and order it. Couldn't find it on my normal place, so checked at Amazon and found it. I ordered it and was glad I did.

Anyway, this movie is about two human seeming people, that are actually sea people. They can change from one state to the other with ease. In this case, it is an older couple and they are "found" by a teenager accidentally. What ensues is a heartwarming movie for all but the very young. Yes, a six year old should be able to watch it, but might not understand everything presented.

In spite of younger people being able to watch this. It is also good for older people and families to watch. I do not know the rating, but I am certain it is available on Amazon somewhere.

So, all in all, it was a GREAT movie!

I just finished watching this movie on the Halmark Movie Channel. It is a wonderful example of how a good story can make a good movie. Sea People reminded me of my own mother who grew up around the sea and has shared many wonderful stories about her experiences. The sea is a mysterious place of which we know so little. If you love the sea, you will enjoy this movie. I just ordered a copy to send to Mom.

A delightful tale about "different" people who turn out not to be so different. Great story for all of the family, no matter the age. Teens and old folk can get along and learn from one another.

My daughter is very careful which movies my granddaughters watch so when I read previous reviews that this was a clean movie I ordered it and had it shipped directly to them, which is a very convenient feature. It was a good movie as expected and I will be enjoying it with them over the Holidays.

I really enjoyed this movie and showed it to my 13 year old Grandaughters and they really enjoyed it too. Wonderful to be able to watch a movie that has no violence or bad language or sex and "HOW AMAZING" it can still be enjoyed!!
