“Sam Worthington (Avatar), Ed Oxenbould (Disney’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day) and David Wenham (The Lord of the Rings) star in this imaginative children’s film about a young Australian boy’s passion for flight and his challenge to compete in the World Paper Plane Championships in Japan.
Eleven-year-old Dylan meets the junior Japanese champion Kimi in the national paper plane championships in Sydney, Australia. They develop a close bond, challenging each other to create a plane that has never been seen before.
Directed by one of Australia’s leading filmmakers Robert Connolly, this is a powerful true story about a friendship between two countries and defying the odds (and gravity in the process). If at first you don’t succeed, fly, fly again!”

This film gives a great message to kids, if you don’t succeed, then try again. My kids weren’t really into this film. My youngest two, (5 & 6) found it a bit boring and lost concentration on it. My eldest (10), enjoyed it, but prefers action movies. But if this movie sounds like your cup of tea, then I have a giveaway for you. One lucky reader will win a copy of Paper Planes on DVD.

The giveaway ends on Friday 18th March And is open to the UK only.
I received a copy of the DVD to review, in return for this post. All opinions are mine
