Three Random Thoughts on Fly Away Home

One of the most touching and sentimental movies ever made stars a whole whack of birds.  Canadian Geese to be exact.  Led by a precocious young girl.  Both trying to fly.  And we love them all so much.

Fly Away Home is the story of a young girl, who after losing her mother, has to go live with her eccentric father.  Things do not go well between them, until a flock of baby Geese enter their lives.  United with the cause of saving the birds, they bond.  And fly.

Fly Away Home is the story of a man, who after having his estranged young daughter thrust into his home, must find some common ground.  After initially fighting her interest in the Geese, he relents.  They unify with the goal of helping the birds, together.  And fly.

Fly Away Home is a mostly true to life tale, about a real Canadian adventurer named Bill Lishman, who in 1986 began working with Geese and their migration.  After several years, he finally succeeded and did a wonderful thing.  And he flew.

This modern classic was released in 1996 and stars Anna Paquin and Jeff Daniels.  The absolutely beautiful final song 10,000 Miles by Mary Chapin Carpenter will fill your heart will love.  And make you want to fly.
