This was a great movie based on a true story. This movie is great because the story is really encouraging and shows me that anything is possible. The movie is about a dolphin named Winter who gets caught in a crab trap and her tail is badly injured. She gets taken back to the Clearwater Marine Hospital where everyone there tries to help her. Her tail is too badly injured to save so they try to make a new tail for her to help her swim. The movie takes us on Winter's journey to swim again. Some of the main characters in the movie are Winter the dolphin, Sawyer, Hazel and Dr. Clay Haskett. My favorite characters in the movie are Sawyer and Winter. I like them because they are really good characters in the movie and it is really cool to see them form such a special friendship. Sawyer is the only one that Winter trusts and he wants to do everything he can to help her. I recommend this movie for all kids ages 5 to 18 because it's such a good movie. A lot of people would like this movie because there are a lot of funny parts. It's really cool to see Winter get better throughout the movie. Go out and see it in theaters when it premieres on September 23rd! Credit: Anthony Aranda, age 8, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic
