Becky and I took the kids to see Big Miracle last weekend at the Regal Cinema in Lone Tree, CO. The Fandango website at Big Miracle describes the movie as follows…
“Local newsman Adam Carlson (Krasinski) can’t wait to escape the northern tip of Alaska for a bigger market. But just when the story of his career breaks, the world comes chasing it, too. With an oil tycoon, heads of state and hungry journalists descending upon the frigid outpost, the one who worries Adam the most is Rachel Kramer (Barrymore). Not only is she an outspoken environmentalist, she’s also his ex-girlfriend…”
Big Miracle is a great film about three gray whales who are trapped in Alaska’s frozen tundra in a wall of ice and they are going to drown unless they can get free from the icy grave. The movie is based on a true story and it shows the dynamics between a news reporter, his ex-girlfriend who is an advocate for Greenpeace, an oil tycoon, the locals and several other characters.
The story is very good and it shows how people can get things done when they work together. What’s very interesting is how they have such different political views and ideas on how to save the whales. It’s probably where the saying, “Save the Whales” came from, but they didn’t say this in the film.
We all really liked this movie and we would recommend seeing it. It was definitely worth the trip. Although, we saw the one with sub-titles, so Corban rated it a Rental.
