Dolphin Tale (3D)

What it's about:

Dolphin Tale is inspired by the amazing true story of a brave dolphin and the compassionate strangers who banded together to save her life. Swimming free, a young dolphin is caught in a crab trap, severely damaging her tail. She is rescued and transported to the Clearwater Marine Hospital, where she is named Winter. But her fight for survival has just begun. Without a tail, Winter's prognosis is dire. It will take the expertise of a dedicated marine biologist, the ingenuity of a brilliant prosthetics doctor, and the unwavering devotion of a young boy to bring about a groundbreaking miracle-a miracle that might not only save Winter but could also help scores of people around the world.

What the critics thought:

"Even if Dolphin Tale hits every note square on the nose - or maybe because it does - watching it is surprisingly pleasurable."
- Stephanie Zacharek, Movieline


"The result is an excellent family film - maybe not up to 1996's Fly Away Home in the kid-helps-wildlife genre but eye-opening and heartwarming and sensibility-expanding all the same."
- Ty Burr, Boston Globe


"Kids are going to eat this up. Given what a dismal year it's been for the family film, it's likely their parents will, too."
- Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine


Inspired by the amazing true story of Winter.

A BRILLIANT MOVIE. A real tear-jerker. An eye-opener for the way we should be treating people and animals with disabilities.

It is a good-for-all family movie. It is focusing on human and animal disabilities and the different types of struggles and discrimination they have to go through. The graphics are fantastic all though there were times when it got a little but blurry from the 3D graphics.
