Rating: 4/5 -- One of the best family films of the 80s. Lucy Deakins and Jay Underwood are delightful. A film you'll cherish forever.

Rating: 4/5 -- It's sweet, it's touching, it's occasionally pretty corny -- but I've got a soft spot for this one all the same.

Description by OLDIES.com:

Jay Underwood plays an autistic boy who provides a source of fascination to a new family in town. Never uttering a sound, Underwood spends hours in his backyard, attempting to fly like the birds. Lucy Deakins, the daughter of the new family, befriends Underwood; she is encouraged by teacher Colleen Dewhurst to try to draw the boy out of his shell, and to keep a journal on the subject. Rendered unconscious in a fall, Deakins dreams that Underwood can fly. The boy is suddenly whisked away to an institution, and Deakins despairs that she'll never see him again.
