    Brothers Joseph and Jacques Montgolfier had a productive year in 1783 when they became the first humans to construct a hot air balloon safe enough to carry passengers. Technological advances have since relegated the balloon to novelty status in the race to become airborne. But briefly, on July 2nd, 1982, the balloon reentered the public consciousness, when truck driver Larry Walters tethered 45 weather balloons to a lawn chair, and took to the air. Larry's experience forms the backbone to the plot in DANNY DECKCHAIR, with Rhys Ifans' starring as Walters's cinematic doppelganger, Danny Morgan. Disgruntled with his life as a laborer in Sydney, Australia, Danny takes off--literally--by tying a bunch of balloons to a deckchair, and ascending to the skies. His flight ends in the sleepy town of Clarence, where he unceremoniously lands in the garden of Glenda Lake (Miranda Otto). The naive townsfolk he encounters in Clarence prove to be a grand source of inspiration to Danny, and he proceeds to teach them how to live life to the fullest, while enjoying a passionate romance with Glenda. But Danny's past life is not totally behind him, and when it catches up to him, his blissful new existence comes under serious threat. This gentle comedy further asserts Ifans's excellence as a comedy actor, bringing his usual mixture of quirkiness and humanity to the role of Danny. Miranda Otto provides an excellent foil for Ifans throughout, with both leads allowing writer/Director Jeff Balsmeyer to unravel a fairytale-like plot around them, providing a welcome dose of heartwarming family entertainment.
