Holly Hunter, Harvey Keitel, Sam Neill.

Anna's role
Flora

Running time
121 minutes

Review
"...And the performance by Paquin, as the daughter, is one of the most extraordinary examples of a child's acting in movie history. She probably has more lines than anyone else in the film, and is as complex, too - able to invent lies without stopping for a breath, and filled with enough anger of her own that she tattles just to see what will happen." (Roger Ebert)

Review
"...Paquin is like a burst of light, with her alert eyes and lively, emotional face. In order to accept that Paquin could turn into the sullen Gainsbourg, you have to think: That must have been a really bad school. " (Mick LaSalle)

Review
"...There's not a great deal amiss with the acting, especially from the excellent Paquin, who fully delivers on the promise of The Piano and Fly Away Home by bringing sensitivity to the role of the politically aware, hormonally active teenager -albeit without ever coming close to eclipsing Christina Ricci's similar turn in The Ice Storm."

Review
"Anna Paquin is wonderful, although underused, as Claire, who becomes a possible love interest for Jamal. Given the character's potential and the degree to which Paquin grasps her psyche (watch her body language and look for the minute changes in facial expression), it's a shame that Claire wasn't given the opportunity for greater development."
