"A real must have"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This movie is really enjoyable, the children have watched it and enjoyed it as well. I have now seen it 3 times and enjoy it more and more each time. A real must have in a DVD collection I feel. It has to me a really good story line and the characters are believable and the events not too far fetched. Grandma5

One of the nicest movies I have ever seen, although I am into thrillers, science fiction and Horror!!! it is heartwarming and just lovely


A family of orphaned geese who've lost their way and a 14-year-old girl who leads them home.A heart-warming story inspired by real-life events, Fly Away Home is a feel-good movie for all the family.


“There are some filmmaking teams that invariably bring out the best in each other, and that's definitely the case with director Carroll Ballard and cinematographer Caleb Deschanel. They previously collaborated on The Black Stallion and Never Cry Wolf, and Fly Away Home is their third family film that deserves to be called a classic. Inspired by Bill Lishman's auto­biography, the movie tells the story of a 13-year-old girl (Anna Paquin) who goes to live with her estranged, eccentric father (Jeff Daniels) following the death of her mother. At first she's withdrawn and reclusive, but finds renewed happiness when she adopts an orphaned flock of baby geese and, later, teaches them to migrate using an ultralight. Sensitively directed and stunningly photographed, the movie has flying sequences that are nothing short of astonishing, and Daniels and Paquin (Oscar winner for The Piano) make a delightful father-daughter duo.”–Jeff Shannon
