Fly Away Home


A fairytale based on a real experiment that took place in 1993. In this version, a girl is distraught after her mother is killed in a car crash, and her father struggles to communicate with her. She is devoted to her pet geese. Her inventor father builds her a microlight airplane to teach the geese which way to fly to warmer climates. Apparently it is not as schmaltzy as it sounds, although kids may enjoy it more than adults.

107 minutes.
