Dreams of Flight
29 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

When Jonathan's grandfather tells him about his great grandfathers attempt to fly across the Atlantic before Lindbergh he is fascinated by the stories. With the assistance of a time machine he goes back in time and meets him before his flight. Art Carney makes a good grandfather. Good casting, locations, and music. An entertaining family movie worth seeing.
