What's the name of that movie about that teenage boy who sits on the window ledge of the second floor of his house, trying to fly. The girl next door looks at him from her bedroom window.

I don't know if this is a trick question or the movie was called something different in the states but in the UK it was called...


...wait for it...


"The Boy Who Could Fly"

Glad I could be of assistance!

Mmm tricky one this but after hours of anguishing over your question I had a revelation, I discovered that buy simply looking to the left and going down the list of movies you will find that about number 87 there is indeed a film called "THE BOY WHO COULD FLY"

Ta Da!

[Smile]

I'll bet a Twinkie that its all about a boy who could indeed fly!

The boy in the movie "Jay Underwood" is in commercials all of the time here in the US. Right now his in one for Lending Tree (a mortgage company in the US). He's also done a bunch of 'bit' parts on TV shows. Too bad his career didn't take off.

I wonder if he can still fly? [Smile]

No worries Giga -- I was only kidding [Wink]

But yeah, it is a great movie. Kinda sneaks up on you. A very gentle movie as well, so don't bother if you prefer lots of action [Wink] This is more of a "character piece". Same director as the Last Starfighter and Lady in White if I remember correctly. [Smile]
