The original script ignited a bidding war in Hollywood and captured major media attention, as writer David M. Evans wrote the script while still in film school and eventually netted more than $1.25 million, which included Evans services as screenwriter and director. When the studio thought their investment in the script too great to gamble on a first-time director, Evans was replaced by Richard Donner which sparked even more coverage, as Evans publicly distanced himself from the film which went on to be a major box office and critical flop.

An imaginative film that opens the imagination of one soul. A young boy and his brother are having a tough life. They suffer an abusive, alcholic father as well as neighbourhood bullies with only their dependable dog as protection.
To escape their existance they build the 'Radio Flyer' a machine they believe will fly and protect them from their troubles.
Good acting and a clever concept will leave you feeling fulfilled however the ending is relatively far fetched.
A good movie.
