The dynamic between Daniels' vigorous, if self-involved, artist father and Paquin's initially sullen, eventually self-discovering teenager is warmly and believably conveyed, with both thesps doing strongly individualistic work.

The tender beauty of Carroll Ballard's ''Fly Away Home'' goes well beyond what might be expected from a movie about things that hatch.
