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.
Losing her tail may cost Winter her life. 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 thousands of people around the world.
The real Winter, who plays herself in “Dolphin Tale,” today serves as a symbol of courage and hope to millions of people—especially those facing their own physical challenges—who have been touched by her remarkable story of recovery and rehabilitation.
Dolphin Tale is an all-around great family movie. My kids LOVED it. They were actually really excited as soon as I showed them it came in the mail. I was surprised at how much they wanted to watch it.
The story is great and my kids responded beautifully to it. At one point they were all standing up in our living room cheering for the dolphin to use her new tale!
You know how sometimes when you are watching a "family" movie with your kids a scene comes up or language is used that makes you just cringe? Well I loved that there was not one moment of cringe-worthy content in this entire film.
Dolphin Tale gets the big thumbs up from our family for any family movie night :)
