Paper Planes - film review

From At The Movies, 7:31 pm on 14 May 2015

Paper Planes - directed by Robert Connolly, starring Sam Worthington and Ed Oxenbould.

Paper Planes features plucky 10-year-old Dylan who lives out in the Australian bush with his dad, played by Sam Worthington. Dylan’s Mum has sadly passed away recently, but Dylan is handling it rather better than Dad is.

Dylan’s teacher encourages him to enter a paper plane-throwing competition – Dylan’s Mum had taught him to make them.

Dylan wins, with the help of his best friend, and he’s anxious to take it to the next level. Can Dylan raise the money to go to the Aussie champs? Will he win? Will he move on to the World Championships in Tokyo?  

Paper Planes is one of those films that your 7-year-old will download regularly, and watch over and over again.  

By the end of the year, I promise you’ll know every single line of the movie by heart.
