Storyline Heading
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. Without a tail, Winter's prognosis is dire. 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 scores of people around the world.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Adventure Drama - This is an inspirational animal-centered drama for the family. Morgan Freeman's role is very small. The tone is a bit more serious than most would expect, but there is a bit of animal humor.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good "Dolphin Tale" is a sweet, feel-good film about a boy who helps save a dolphin, and how the dolphin then helps save him.

USA Today Full Review
Good This is not only kid-friendly fare, but a lovely family movie. The story of healing and courage is told with a refreshing lack of cynicism,...

Washington Post Full Review
Above Average But even if you're among those who wouldn't know Winter from Flipper, you should have no trouble plugging into the film's relaxed and enjoyably unhurried pace because Smith has delivered such a heartwarmingly hokey and accessible production.
