A boy obsessed with 50s sci-fi movies about aliens has a recurring dream about a blueprint of some kind, which he draws for his inventor friend. With the help of a third kid, they follow it and build themselves a spaceship. Now what?
While on location in a spooky Romanian villa with his Hollywood big-shot mom and her dorky boyfriend, twelve-year-old Kevin befriends a Renaissance-era girl ghost who helps him cause unrest on the set.
A young boy is found wandering without any memory of who he is. A family takes him in and begin to look for clues to help him find his way home. In the meantime, they notice that the boy seems to have certain special abilities, not usually found in kids his age, or even fully-grown adults.Written by

When Joyce teaches Daryl how to play the piano, Daryl demonstrates his grasp of the piece's rhythm (at around 6 mins) by saying, "Whole note, two half notes, and four quarters to a measure," a perfect description of 4/4 time. However, they play a piece in 6/8 time. See more »
Well,I believe this is one the greatest movies from the 80s.I really love the movies made during the 1980s,although I was born in late 1986.Really,80s produced many great movies,like ET,Back to the Future Trilogy,the Goonies,Inidana Jones and many other ones.You can consider Daryl to be another kid adventure movie,just like the Goonies.This movie gives me a feeling that it has something in common with the movie Artificial Intelligence.They both have a robot boy who wants to be a normal kid,right?Yeah,however,I prefer Daryl to AI,Daryl is more realistic,like that suburban lifestyle around here the USA. So if you like kids,adventure,suburban life,and you're also nostalgic and sci-fi minded,I suggest you seeing this Daryl.
