FLY AWAY HOME - SPECIAL EDITION - DVD Movie
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 At first she's withdrawn and reclusive, but finds renewed happiness when she adopts an orphaned flock of baby geese and, later, teaches them to migrate using an ultralight.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. Ironically, the digital video disc is not available in widescreen format, but the image quality is brilliant. --Jeff Shannon
