Weekend movie tip for animal lovers



Dolphin Tale is currently in theaters and I saw it with a few young children. It’s an “inspired by real life” story of a dolphin injured after being caught in a crab trap, who is rescued and nursed back to health. The dolphin, named Winter, loses her tail to infection and although she learns to swim without it, her survival depends on her ability to adapt to a prosthetic tail. The story of the dolphin’s eventual triumph is paralleled by the struggle of injured war veterans to overcome their challenges. Although it’s a film marketed to kids, the story behind Dolphin Tale is compelling to any animal lover, and speaks to the interdependence of humans and animals.
