Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Tim Roth stars in this suburban tale with an otherworldly twist as Skellig, a seemingly weakened bird-like angel who young Michael finds living in a shed at the far end of his parent's garden. Distraught by the news of his baby sister's congenital heart problems, Michael is in need of a friend, and Skellig may be the unlikely soul to fulfill that duty. Funny, fantastic, and rooted in reality, this unconventional family-friendly mystery-fantasy is based on an award-winning novel by David Almond and co-stars John Simm (Doctor Who), Kelly Macdonald (Transpotting), and Bill Milner as Michael. ~ Jonathan Frey, Rovi
