If you like William Bouguereau, you'll love this movie
I don't have much in the way of feelings so usually stick to science.
An engineer by trade I used to subscribe to a "tecchie" aviation magazine. One issue had this incredible story by some kindly if eccentric Canadian folks who had raised a gaggle of baby geese, and you know the rest. Details of aviation aside, the story warmed my heart. Most Unusual.
A year or so later I took my kids to see "Flyaway Home" expecting a mildly entertaining nature documentary, like Disney's old "Prairie Dog Town" with an aviation twist.
What I saw was a superbly crafted and deeply touching little masterpiece. I was in tears by the end.
Metaphors of kindness aside, this film will touch any heart however hardened or scarred .
And the kids liked it too.
