In 1950s Grey Rocks, Nova Scotia, a mysterious old seadog named Captain Charles Johnson comes to port and takes up residence in the inn of Kerstin Hawkins and her son, Jim. Once there, young Jim realizes that there is far more to that old sailor than meets the eye as Johnson offers to help on a school project about pirates in the region in ways Jim never imagined. Along the way, Capt. Johnson learns of the threat that a modern day pirate, the rapacious Mr. Moehner, poses and offers to help with that as well. All the while, that old sailor has his own business in that small town with a more direct link to its past that only Jim knows is possible.Written by

After having read the novel, The Pirate's Passage, Donald Sutherland called author William Gilkerson in Nova Scotia about buying the movie rights, saying: "I would like to buy this. Please. This is where I'm from. This is where my heart is. Let me do it." See more »
A ship's flag waves in the direction the ship is moving. The reason for this is because the wind that fills the sails pushing the ship forward also pushes the flag in the same direction. See more »
I missed the first few minutes of this animated production and focused in when I heard Donald Sutherland's voice, as I try to watch anything he has participated in. I found myself easily drawn into a simple story with some clever ideas. As the movie progressed, I felt it would have been wonderful to have my grandson watching with us.
The story felt like a Hanna-Barbera movie, but the animation is a totally different style. A young Nova Scotia boy is helped by a ghost pirate to discover about local history, and how to deal with a school bully. His home is a small mansion/inn run by his widowed mother, whose mortgage holder also covets the site for his own plans. Our young boy discovers there are bullies outside of school-yards as well.
Parts of the story unfold in a predictable fashion -- which is desirable in a movie like this. Still there are enough changes and creative areas for all ages to enjoy. You may even learn a thing or two about pirates of the Atlantic.
