Sweet and Inspiring Film
on 20 February 2008
In this film, a young girl, played by Anna Paquin, has to go and stay with her Father after her Mother dies in a car accident. At first, the young girl is depressed and fails to find her feet in the strange new surroundings of Ontario, but eventually discovers some purpose after discovering an entire family of abandoned Geese eggs who she nurtures through the hatching stage.
In the process known as imprinting, the Geese latch onto the young girl and follow her everywhere, but then the girl and her Father have to think about training the young geese to fly, and do this with the help of two aircraft which the Father has designed and built himself. All of this is based on a true story.
This film is sweet, poignant, and has much to say about the importance of nature. It is all the more inspiring for being based on a true story and if you allow it to, this film will also teach you that EVERYTHING in nature has a value, not just the animals that are cute and cuddly.
