Review: Dolphin Tale

It's half-term; hurrah!

For me, this is a brilliant week as it means that I get to spend all week with The Boy and do lots of fun things, like play in the sand pit as we did today. However, it's also February and therefore still cold and often raining; boo!

I'm imagining that for many parents of older children, they will be stocking up on DVDs to keep their children amused this week? Craft and cooking can only go so far towards alleviating the boredom, after a while, you need a feel-good film.

That film comes in the form of Dolphin Tale! This is a delightful family film by Warner Brothers, inspired by the true story of Winter the dolphin who was found injured on a beach and taken to a marine hospital. Unfortunately her tale was badly infected and she had to have it removed. This film tells the tale of her road swim to recovery with the help of the young man who found her, Sawyer.

With a cast including Harry Connick Jnr, Ashley Judd, Kris Kristofferson and, my favourite, Morgan Freeman, the quality of acting is guaranteed throughout, and who can resist a tail of friendship and love?

Definitely something to warm the soul this week!

I was sent a copy of this for review.

    Took the boys last weekend to see this film. It was the only one with tickets still available. We'd never heard of it, but Brodie loves animals, so thought we'd give it a go.
    He was mesmerised. And the fact it's based on a true story made it even more magical, as we raced home to check out Winter's website and see the webcam with the dolphin herself swimming around.
    What a lovely story, and a beautiful film x
