Move over Willie, there is a new ocean creature to focus our collective love upon. Inspired by true events comes Dolphin Tale, a story about a boy who builds a bond with Winter, a dolphin that lost its tail in a crab trap. Guaranteed to make you cry, the film chronicles the life and death struggle of the amputee dolphin and the indelible spirit of Sawyer, the boy who inspired all those around him to believe. (If your eyes don’t well up with tears, even when watching this trailer, then it is clear you are a callous, wicked human being).
Dolphin Tale stars Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, Harry Connick Jr., Kris Kristofferson, Nathan Gamble, Cozi Zuehlsdorff and Ray McKinnon.
Dolphin Tale arrives in US theaters on September 23, 2011 and UK theaters on October 14, 2011.
