Fly Away Home
Forced to move in with her eccentric father after the tragic death of her mother, a 13-year-old girl finds a sense of purpose when she discovers a nest of abandoned goose eggs. After nurturing them to hatching stage and becoming their surrogate “Mother Goose,” she and her father struggle to devise a way to lead them south for the winter, ultimately sending the girl skyward in a makeshift ultralight plane.
Fairly gentle film about a 13-year-old who goes to live with her eccentric inventor father after the mother dies in a car accident. Based on a true story, the daughter raises a nest of motherless goose eggs. When it comes time to fly South for the winter, guess who must lead them?! The outstanding photography makes up for many of the films flaws. Unfortunately the picture never offers a satisfactory healing between parent and child.
