Based on a true story, the tale of a cement truck driver named Danny, whose long awaited vacation is cancelled thanks to his scheming girlfriend, Trudy. Danny escapes his grim life in suburban Australia and blasts into the skies in a chair tied with helium balloons. A mighty thunderstorm blows him clean off the map, and spits him out far away over the lush green town of Clarence. In this new town, he rockets into the world of Glenda, the town's only parking cop. While the media back home becomes obsessed with the story of his disappearance, Danny gets to reinvent himself in this new town, and in his great adventure, he discovers a true soulmate in Glenda. Fate catches up with him eventually, as Danny's true identity is revealed and Trudy--now a tabloid celebrity--comes to the idyllic town to claim Danny and drag him back to Sydney.

If you like sweet, romantic comedies or you're looking for the perfect date movie Danny Deckchair is for you. Rhys Ifans, maybe best known as the slovenly roommate in Notting Hill, is unexpectedly charming as the title character, Danny. It's the story of a man finding himself (and love) by first getting lost. Danny is a goofy, hard-working everyman who doesn't know what he's missing until he literally falls into the backyard of the beautiful, but lonely Glenda, a small town parking cop. The two form an unlikely alliance that not only energizes their own hearts, but those of the local townspeople as well. Like a Jimmy Stewart character in a Frank Capra film, Danny finds a passion and integrity that he didn't now he had and he's able to inspire goodwill in everyone around him - including this film's audience.
