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
Demián Bichir's entire dialogue is in Spanish and not dubbed into English. It is subtitled for the audience. For the Irish villagers in the film who don't speak Spanish it is translated by Paco. See more »
Demián Bichír gives a driving lesson to Jamie Kierans in a left hand drive Ford Fiesta (which they hardly had in Ireland in 1983) and the same car 'miraculously' turns into a right hand one in a later scene when Bichír collects Kerry Condon for a date. See more »
As improbable, unlikely, ridiculous and strange as the basic premise of this movie is, the film nonetheless very much succeeds. In modern times, a plane crash in rural Ireland discovered only by a wee lad leads an entire town into a fit of what can only be described as insanity. But with unemployment high and skilled men and women with time on their hands, who knows what might happen when a handsome stranger lands in town. It is quirky,funny and uplifting with well drawn characters and an excellent cast. As an Indie author myself, with aspirations of my book some day made into film, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Watch and enjoy. OK for all ages in my estimation.
