This Friday, an amazing dolphin rescue story will be coming to theatres. Read about the film below, and leave a comment on this post for the chance to win a “Dolphin Tale” beach gear package* (see prize details below). Good luck!!
Alcon Entertainment’s “Dolphin Tale” is inspired by the amazing true story of a brave dolphin and the compassionate strangers who banded together to save her life.
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.
The real Winter, who plays herself in “Dolphin Tale,” today serves as a symbol of courage, perseverance and hope to millions of people–both able and disabled–who have been touched by her remarkable story of recovery and rehabilitation.
“Dolphin Tale” was filmed on location in Florida, including Winter’s home at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, whose motto is “Rescue, Rehabilitate and Return.” For more information on the movie, click here.
Slated for release on September 23, 2011, “Dolphin Tale” will be distributed in 3D and 2D in select theatres by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
This film has been rated PG for mild thematic elements.
