The Man Who Wanted to Fly
This documentary tells the irresistible story of 80-something, bachelor farmer Bobby Coote. Bobby spends a lot of time in his back shed in County Cavan (in the Irish province of Ulster) fixing clocks and making violins from old furniture. He says his reading and writing isn’t great – but his dreams sure are: for over 50 years Bobby has wanted to fly. Director Frank Shouldice’s delightful film, full of good humor and endearingly eccentric characters, follows the octogenarian on his eventful journey to the clouds. An uplifting story and in every way inspiring.
