Dolphin Tale 2 is a Reminder Never to Give Up

posted by Corine Gatti

The famous dolphin that won the hearts of the disabled all over the globe returns to offer us insight and encouragement again in “Dolphin Tale 2.” Winter was rescued after she lost her tail in a crab trap. She survived because of a ground-breaking prosthetic tail. Since 2011, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium has been able to expand its efforts to aid marine animals with new labs, pools, and operating rooms. Attendance increased from 78,000 in 2006 to 750,000 after the first film.

“When somebody who’s an amputee or disabled in some way comes up and says that this movie helped me, [and] I see it all the time–that’s what makes critics and stuff not matter,” said Harry Connick Jr. (Dr. Clay Haskett ). “If there’s one person that you can touch, you’ve done more than what you’ve set out to do.”

In the sequel we feel Winter’s pain after she lost her surrogate mother Panama, and falls into a depression. She would not allow her human friend Sawyer Nelson (Nathan Gamble) put her tail on, which started to deteriorate her spine.

The USDA dictated that Winter needed a companion or would have to be moved. Another bottled-nosed beauty was in rehabilitation , named Mandy, but she was ready to be released into the ocean.

Then comes Hope, who was also rescued by CMA to not only to aid Winter, but to encourage us to respect, honor, and learn from our marine friends. We need to acknowledge our human arrogance towards these animals, accept change, and that sometimes we never know the reasons why there is death.

This film reminds us to “Have the courage to keep going,” said Austin Powell (Kyle Connellan).

Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, Nathan Gamble and Cozi Zuehlsdorff all return to the film that opens nationwide on Sept. 12.
