We loved watching Paper Planes, the characters and the story appealed to us from the start and there is a lesson for us all running through the film.

Ed Oxenbould, portrayed his character Dylan well.  We empathised with him and his story.  I cried watching the sad parts of the film.  I also felt frustrated with his dad’s character.  I know he suffered from his own grief but I really wanted him to be there  more for his son. The kids, interestingly, forgave him and could completely understand the need for him to deal with his own problems first.

As the story progressed, we watched from the edge of our seats and willed, almost as much as Dylan that he would get through to the next round of the Paper Planes Championships.  

The two lessons from this story are if at first you don’t succeed, try (fly) again and that sometimes it’s more important to make something both beautiful and amazing than to actually win.

After watching Paper Planes, you may feel compelled to make some old school paper darts and throw them.  The official site has tutorials to make the planes featured in the show (our home is now full of them).
