This tender and uplifting fable from director Carroll Ballard (The Black Stallion) is about adorable geese, but also about environment, growing up, and rites of passage. After 13-year old Amy (Anna Paquin) is sent to live with her father (Jeff Daniels) in Canada, she must create a new home for herself in a foreign place. When she rescues a bunch of geese eggs about to be bulldozed by a developer, she becomes a mother of sorts to the birds and finds a way out of her grief and into a new life. Rated PG.
