"Fly Away Home" has been a favorite in my family for years. The story is classic, with every element of a film that is sure to last. The movie gives a vivid and often raw presentation of the relationships within a family, particularly between estranged members, and raises interesting questions about what family itself is and what it means. The view is utterly breathtaking as we're taken on a flight through the Canadian skies, following both the physical and emotional journey of Amy and her father. The father-daughter relationship, in any context, is often a touchy subject, and many films have a tendency to overdramatize certain elements of such a relationship. While the drama is certainly here with this one, we see less of the verbal, noisy drama than we do the quiet, awkward, tense, and somewhat snippy sentiments which exist between the two. Anna Paquin is flawless. Jeff Daniels will make you laugh, cry, and applaud. The chemistry between these two actors is beautiful, making this film one of the first and only that I have ever seen that has not made me despise the "rebellious daughter" figure. If this movie has a flaw, it is only that it is a bit slow by times. Still, for those who, like me, don't mind those sweepingly beautiful images of Canadian landscape, even if nothing much is happening... you'll enjoy the film.

A Timeless ClassicReviewed bybrown-faith922Vote: 9/10
My fiancé checked this movie out at the library. She'd seen it before and wanted me to see it. At the risk of seeming sexist I'm usually apprehensive at the sort of "chick flicks" she often chooses.
This movie, however, was a home run. There were many things about it I loved. The performance by Anna Paquin was fantastic, Jeff Daniels and the rest of the supporting cast did a solid job. The geese (and the cinematography which allowed them to do it) were very emotionally expressive. And the gadgetry (I'm a Rube Goldberg sort of inventor myself) was wonderful.
My best testimonial to this film, however, is that whether I choose a movie, or my fiancé does, I normally fall asleep on the couch watching it after the first hour or so. This one kept me interested to the end.
This was a great movie about courage, overcoming tragedy, and leadership. After her mother is killed in a car accident, Anna Paquin moves to Canada with her father (Jeff Daniels) after he comes to pick her up. They discover a nestful of baby geese (newly hatched!) whose mother has just died too, and they have to learn how to fly. Unfortunately, they can't learn without example, and she has to be that example. She does so by building model airplanes which she flies. She makes news by showing them the way south.
I loved the aerial scenes (which were beautifully shot) and the scene where the daughter was horrified when the guy wanted to clip the chicks' wings. Everybody matures and serves as "parent figures" in the process. This was a throughly enjoyable movie and great "family fare." You will love it-guaranteed.
