Dolphin tale (U)
Starring: Nathan Gamble
From the producers who brought you My Dog Skip, PS I Love You and Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants – a trio that should have earned them a worldwide ban – comes this based-on-fact heartwarmer about an inspirational dolphin named Winter.
Washed up injured on a Florida beach, the fish became the pet project of a marine hospital, a prosthetics whizz (Morgan Freeman) and the diffident boy Sawyer (Nathan Gamble) who found her. Interlinked with it is another tale of healing as Sawyer's soldier cousin returns maimed from a tour of Iraq. Two hours of redemptive hugs, triumphant whoops and tearful smiles later we learn that pinning a tail on a dolphin is, on the scale of human achievement, not far behind winning the Nobel Peace Prize and discovering a cure for cancer. Well done everyone!
