Dolphin Tale is the amazing true story of Winter, a young bottlenose dolphin who lost her tail in a crab trap and survived.
After finding Winter on the shore of Fort Pierce, Florida, Sawyer Nelson and the staff of Clearwater Marine Aquarium are determined to heal Winter and teach her to swim without her tail. It’s not long though before swimming without her tail begins to hurt Winter’s spine, threatening paralysis. However, Winter and her new friends are not giving up.
I personally love films about a real cause or story and people going above and beyond to save another living creature. I find them captivating, inspiring and most importantly, uplifting. And Dolphin Tale is just that. This magnificent true story is great for the whole family and will be loved by all walks of life.
Maybe Dolphin Tale isn’t the exact version of Winter’s true journey, but it comes pretty close and it teaches us all of the right lessons. It goes further than never giving up and overcoming obstacles; it reflects on self-image, friendship and the extremely important value of family.
The story would not have been the same without an amazing cast. Morgan Freeman stars as Dr. McCarthy and is the show stealer, as always. Well, with the exception of the adorable Winter, starring as herself. Nathan Gamble plays Sawyer Nelson, a young alienated boy who can’t seem to find his place. Lovable Cozi Zuehisdorff plays Hazel Haskett, a chipper little girl who works with her dad at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
Go and enjoy Dolphin Tale with your whole family this weekend.
