Storyline

After his dad Ryan senior's death in a truck accident, schoolboy Ryan Flynn, a gentle, somewhat nerdy space-fan, becomes a recluse. He shuts up completely after a fall and near-drowning experience while roaming the countryside with his admirably patient, cheerful playmate Rocky Mazzelli. Only Ryan's late granddad finds a magical way to get trough to him and introduce him to a mysterious place, the 'dust factory'. There grandpa and resident teenager Melanie 'Pan' Lewis shows how youngsters prepare for their next life phase. But deciding when they are isn't easy or safe. Written by KGF Vissers

i just watched this movie
17 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie seriously was a great film. The writing and the performances turned in by the young cast were amazing, Working in the movie industry I do see a lot of films and this one was one of the best I have seen in a long time. This movie will probably never win an Oscar but for any sake it should. This movie will tug at you heart strings from the moment you meet the Melanie Character. This movie about the magic land between heaven and earth will really make you think about how you live your life and what you can do better. Hayden Panettiere and Ryan Kelley are a great pair and can actually make you believe this place is real. THe Grandfather Character played by Armin Mueller-Stahl is difficult to grasp why he is even in the picture until the "dust factory" is explained. I do happen to agree with the woman who said it has a foreign film quality to it it does and for once i happen to think it makes a positive effect on the movie.
