Unlucky-in-love Danny Morgan (Rhys Ifans) ties helium balloons to a deck chair as a party joke but accidentally gets untethered and ends up floating high across Australia. Eventually, he crash lands and is rescued by small-town traffic cop Glenda (Miranda Otto).

  • This handsome movie works thanks to its lack of pretension and an atmosphere somewhat akin to the gentle wackiness of director Bill Forsyth's better works. show more
