Review The tender beauty of Carroll Ballard's Fly Away Home goes well beyond what might be expected from a movie about things that hatch... Ballard turns a potentially treacly children's film into an exhilarating '90s fable. It concerns family, ecology, adolescence and, above all (quite literally) geese. See it and you will never look at a down comforter in quite the same way.

Review Let me say up front that I have never been especially fond of Canadian geese... Now that I've made that admission, you might be surprised to learn that I actually liked the goose-fest, Fly Away Home. However, while there are geese aplenty here, the movie isn't so much about birds as it is about a lonely little girl and how, in pursuit of a common goal, she and her estranged father find one another... a warm drama that's more about love and trust between a father and daughter than inter-species connections. The result, even for geese-haters, is charming.
