Dylan’s life has ground to a bit of a halt. His mother died in a car accident, and his father is completely consumed by grief. To top it all off, he faces constant torment from a school bully. His one fascination is flight, from the planes his grandfather used to fly in the RAAF to the kite-hawk he feeds every day before school. From this, he discovers the World Paper Plane Championships. He vows to earn his place there, and sets out to become the best paper plane thrower he can be. Having made it to the Championships, he faces more difficulty in the form of a rival: Jason. Luckily, this whole experience has brought him ever closer to his father, and when he befriends a young Japanese girl, Kimi, it seems things might be looking up for Dylan. Can Dylan hold his nerve in the Championships and take on Jason? With so much standing against him, will he find a new source of happiness in his life, or will it be snatched away from him? This charming Australian film is a treat for all the family, directed by Robert Connolly (Underground: The Julian Assange Story). Starring Sam Worthington (Avatar), Terry Norris (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader), and Ed Oxenbould (Julian), Paper Planes is a heart-warming story of giving happiness a chance.
