Storyline

The Runway is inspired by the true story of a South American pilot who landed his plane near Mallow, in 1983. Against all odds, the people of the town came together to build a runway to get him home and briefly caught the imagination of the nation. It is the story of Paco, a young boy without a father who adopts the pilot and convinces the town to build a runway to get him home. Written by Anonymous

it was a good film
18 February 2011 | by (cork) – See all my reviews

The Runway is an exceptionally good movie. There was a few parts that were a little boring put in the end it was fantastic all i could say was amazing!. A few people including me were invited by Jamie Kierans(Paco), to the premiere in cork city and it was amazing. The theater was packed and there were loads of people in the end saying what an amazing film it was. But out of some of them there were a few who didn't like it. I would have to say in the end I would rate this film 5 star because the storyline was good and the acting was amazing.I would have to say this film is most suggested to 12s and over. The acting was amazing especially by Jamie Kierans(Paco), the Culmbian pilot and all the rest were amazing!
