Dolphin Tale a winning sea mammal movie 

Good for kids and families, will make you cry

It’s true what they say; Morgan Freeman really does show up in everything, even aquatic children’s films about wounded dolphins. Filling the void left by ‘90s classic Free Willy, Dolphin Tale is a film based on the true story of a dolphin named Winter who, after being injured in a fisherman’s trap and subsequently undergoing an amputation, becomes the first dolphin to ever survive without a tail (hence the pun in the title). It’s important to note that this is a movie for kids, and there won’t be much for adults who attend the film, even with charming performances by Freeman, Harry Connick Jr. and Ashley Judd. But for younger viewers, Dolphin Tale is a heartwarming story about friendship, family, and following your dreams. If you don’t cry while watching this movie, you don’t have a soul.
