PAPER PLANES

An imaginative children's film about a young Australian boy's passion for flight and his challenge to compete in the World Paper Plane Championships in Japan. — IMDB

What a delight this little movie is! I was very pleasantly surprised. The director wanted to make a movie like the ones he saw when he was a kid - and hes pulled it off. The plot is a bit predictable with a somewhat forced ending, but its a touching story with some great messages for the whole family about grief and father-son relationships. And when is the last time you saw a movie about paper planes? Ex Oxenbould, who plays the young boy obsessed with flight, is outstanding. Theres some great humour and the rural landscapes of Western Australia, where a large proportion of the movie was filmed (also in Tokyo) are beautiful. It’s a charming film that will have your heart soaring.
