Lorraine Bracco (Medicine Man, Goodfellas) John Heard (Home Alone, Awakenings) and Oscar-winner Ben Johnson (Best Supporting Actor, 1971, The Last Picture Show) star in this moving story of a family torn apart by violence - and healed by imagination.
Elijah Wood (Lord Of The Rings Trilogy) and Joseph Mazzello co-star as Bracco's two young sons, devoted brothers who escape their chaotic family life with dreams of flying. Inspired by a local legend, they attempt to build a working airplane. And in the process of transforming their ordinary red wagon into a fantastical flying machine, they transform their own lives into an extraordinary adventure. A beautifully-made movie filled with all the heartache and joy of childhood. RADIO FLYER is "daring, amazing, and wonderful. A deeply moving film." (Dennis Cunningham, WCBS-TV).
