Flying (also known as Dream To Believe and Teenage Dream) is a 1986 drama film directed by Paul Lynch and starring Olivia d'Abo, Rita Tushingham and Keanu Reeves.


Robin Crew is a high school student who used to be a champion gymnast until she suffered a knee injury in the car accident which killed her father. She continues to train on her own and makes her school's gymnastics team, despite outside pressures from her step-father and the other gymnasts. Robin does, however, receive support from her mother and Tommy, her new boyfriend, as the crucial gymnastics meet approaches.

Production and release[edit]

Filming took place from October 1984 until December 1984. Cynthia Rhodes reportedly served as a dance double for Olivia d'Abo.[1] The film was first screened at the 1986 Cannes Film Festival. That year, it was released theatrically in its native Canada on September 12, 1986. Sometime after its theatrical release, it was released on video in the United States by Cinema Group Home Video and in Canada by Cineplex Odeon.

The movie is assumed to be public domain as it has been released on VHS and DVD several times from different distributors since then.
