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.
