No better children's film has appeared all year, but my bet is it'll be the grown-ups, not the kids, who come away with a lump in the throat.

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.

Anna Paquin proves again what an expressive, soulful actress she is, and Daniels' madcap dad is a winning study in hippy ingenuity and indefatigability.

Its aerial scenes are wondrous, beautiful as symphonies, and worth the price of admission alone. Count as a bonus the skilled, heartfelt performance from the teen-aged star and from Mr. Daniels as her resourceful dad.

A great adventure made all the more enjoyable because it is based on a true story.

Beautifully directed by Carroll Ballard, the film is a celebration of the creative ways human beings and animals can serve, assist, and love one another.

It's a movie about dreamers that, for once, doesn't make you feel like a sap for buying into their dreams.
January 1, 2000
Cuteness galore, terrific aerial shots, and a healthy dose of environmental awareness.

The predictability of all this might be more palatable if the characters were better developed or more appealing.

From bumbling infants to majestic adults, a flock hasn't been this charismatic onscreen since Hitchcock went bird-watching.

Daniels, in a scruffy beard and wearing the apologetic look of a divorced dad who hasn't visited his kid enough, hasn't been this good in a long time.
