Fly Away Home is a sweet and uplifting film. I like this movie a lot. It tells the story of a 13-year-old girl named Amy whose mother dies in a car crash in New Zealand. She moves to her father's house in Canada and discovers that he is a peculiar inventor who likes building machines for flying. She finds a bunch of geese eggs near their home and raises them. As winter approaches, Amy decides to use her father's flying invention to lead a bevy of geese to the south. Will she be able to complete this dangerous goal? Find out for yourself! This movie contains beautiful visuals and aerial cinematography. I especially liked the scenes that show the geese flying over various breathtaking landscapes. At times I could not tell whether the movie used CGI animation or real flying to film the scenery because it looked so real! I also like the universal environmental theme the movie incorporated because it shows that it is immoral to destroy animal habitats for big corporations. The movie delivers another message that you should go after what you believe in. I recommend this film to children 7 and up. It is an inspiring family film and perfect for all ages. Fly Away Home is one of the many classic family films offered to you by HDnet movies on KidScene, available on morning and Friday nights. Credit: Gabriella Chu, age 14, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic
Charming, wholesome movie with powerful acting by likable characters. Without being overly sentimental, shows how parent and child can reconcile differences. Offers inspiring insights into flight, migration, death and self-strength. Beautiful cinematography, heartfelt theme. The scene where the Mom dies in a car accident is emotionally upsetting and there is one mild profanity.
After her mother's death, a young girl finds happiness with her estranged father when they embark on a migration adventure with their newly adopted flock of baby geese. Inspired by true events.
