You know those rare movies where you sit down and you're transfixed for the entire film?
This is one of those.
Australian films have a real knack for tapping into authentic, innocent and inspiring stories - and Paper Planes did just that and so much more. It really captured childhood in rural Australia, and tells a simple story of 12 year old Dylan who falls in love with the art of paper folding - and it literally takes off from there.
A brilliant Australian cast including Ed Oxenbould (amazing!), Sam Worthington (I really wanted to shake his character), Deborah Mailman (she is pure joy), Peter Rowsthorn (hilarious) and David Wenham, this is going to blow your mind!
In fact, it wasn't just about me - my two kids really, really loved it, and so did Matt. This film is about dreams, the beauty in simplicity - and making something beautiful. And of course the surprise inclusion of Kelis' 'Milkshake'. It was magic.
I came home from the movie and promptly started folding paper planes, to the delight of the cat and my kids. My cat particularly because he's pretty well mauled them.
If you haven't already seen it, you definitely need to - quick smart.
