Critic Reviews of "Fly Away Home"VarietyNovember 27, 2008
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.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Anna Paquin proves again what an expressive, soulful actress she is, and Daniels' madcap dad is a winning study in hippy ingenuity and indefatigability.New York TimesJanuary 01, 2000
The tender beauty of Carroll Ballard's ''Fly Away Home'' goes well beyond what might be expected from a movie about things that hatch.USA TodayJanuary 01, 2000

Story of a girl and her geese is complex entertainment for kids and grown-ups.Cincinnati EnquirerOctober 15, 2002
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.Film ScoutsApril 17, 2002
A great adventure made all the more enjoyable because it is based on a true story.
