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.
