A perfect family movie!
This is the first review I have written, but I feel obligated as this movie was so perfect for its genre. I’m not saying it is an academy award winner, but as far as inspirational, age appropriate and inspiring family movies go, if simply won’t get much better than this.
Let me start by saying that I have a child with a physical disability, and during his second surgery, his school class gave him a book about Winter. This was way before the movie, and I had never heard of Winter. My son (age 5), who loves fish and sea life, was instantly taken with the idea of a dolphin that was special like he was. We read the book many times, and even at the hospital we promised that someday he would get to meet Winter.
About six months after his surgery, we traveled to Clearwater from our home on the opposite Florida Coast (4 hour drive). When we arrived we found the aquarium there very sparse and not all that impressive. That said, they were majorly renovating due to the money that they were paid to make this movie even though it still wasn’t out yet. That said, Winter was well worth the trip. She is every bit as inspirational and real as what you see in the movie. I’m only bringing this up to focus on my movie review. This is for anyone that thought the movie was over the top sappy or cheesy. I’m sorry, but that part is true and to not make it look that way would be virtually impossible. Winter gives hope to people with special needs. My son even made her a card and got to hold her special tail.
The other features of the movie like the boy finding her and probably many other aspects are creative license. She was actually found by a boat on the East coast of Florida. But, I don’t think that really matters. When we went there, even with no movie, and met Winter we knew that she was a movie star.
The movie itself was well produced, well-acted (Morgan Freeman was very good), and took on difficult themes subtly for young children. I guess the best comparison to this would be Free Willy, however that story was pure fantasy and simply not as good of a movie, in any way, to Dolphin Tale.
I highly recommend this movie for any family, especially anyone with a disability. And as far as the barely believable and possibly sappy plot, sometime real life is like that and that is a good thing!
what a great movie in all
well from clearwater Florida myself where this is filmed its great to see all locations and be like oh there’s honeymoon island there’s the tarpon sponge docks there’s clearwater beach and oh there’s where i work the sandpearl resort where many of the crew and actors stayed. as a cook for the sandpearl i got to meet many of the actors. but the clearwater marine aquarium has always been a place dear to my heart it has such a great cause and is so heavily underfunded. this movie is so inspiring too. i took my girlfriend there who suffers from CP (cerebal palsy) and it brings tears in my eyes to show the will power of a dolphin to survive just like a human does no matter life’s bringing to our plate this movie is not just about a dolphin but its about finding friends in the least expected places. and about family and what is family really about… everyone should go and see… also take a chance to goto the clearwater aquarium
