Big Miracle

Directed by: Ken Kwapis

Cast: Drew Barrymore, John Krasinski, Ted Danson, Kristen Bell, John Pingayak

Running Time: 1 hr 47 mins

Rating: PG

Release Date: February 3, 2012

Plot: Based on a true story. In 1998, in the small town of Barrow, Alaska, a news reporter (Krasinski) does a news story on three trapped grey whales, which brings the attention of many Americans including his ex-girlfriend (Barrymore), a Greenpeace volunteer.

Who’S It For? Families. It’s plain and simple. I think it will definitely help if you recall the true story and if you are a little nostalgic for the ’80s.


There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of those whales. Ok, that’s not true. In fact, I probably haven’t thought about Fred, William and Bamm-Bamm (the whales’ names) since 1989. But it all came back to me. That’s the power of Big Miracle despite its flaws. »
