    Paper Planes 2014

    ★★★ Watched 04 Jul, 2015

    A cute little feel-good movie without great surprises, but with an all around charming cast and filmed in beautiful locations. *sigh* - Australia, how much do I love you...

And 3 of them are only in for like 10 minutes, the movie basically rests on the shoulders of Patrick Wilson and Ellen Page, and boy, can these two act! Especially Ellen Page, I mean, she was 18 (looking like 14) when the movie was made and she's simply incredible in it.…
