A lonely and friendless boy finds and untangles a hurt dolphin that is caught in a crab trap. He becomes very attached to the dolphin when the tail must be taken off to save the dolphin's life. The boy believes the dolphin would be able to swim normally if it was given a prosthetic tail. Written by
Douglas Young (the-movie-guy)
When the news channel shows Winter, there is footage of the dolphin being lifted into the truck at the beach. At the beginning, when the dolphin was first rescued, there were only the rescuers and the boy, but one of the rescuers did have a camera and was filming the events. See more »
What a treat! I attended an Advance Screening of DOLPHIN TALE in RealD 3D in Ottawa on Saturday, September 17 at 10:00am at Empire 7 Theatre. This is a movie for "Everyone of All Ages", not just kids. I would dare to suggest that Parents should not drop off the kids to see this film but share this movie with your children. It is a very enjoyable, uplifting and heartwarming film that you will definitely enjoy seeing with your children. Grandparents will also enjoy seeing this film with their grandchildren. It is also a factual and enlightening film based upon a true story and is not "a fantasy film", such a the "Free Willy" type of films. I highly recommend that you put this on your "Must See" list and if you cannot make it to the theatre it will make a great Christmas gift or stocking stuffer. Thank you so very much, Warner Bros. Pictures Canada and Empire Theatres!
