Fans of movies such as "Free Willy" and "Dolphin Tale" are sure to take to this fact-inspired tale about the efforts to free several whales trapped by ice in the Arctic.
A reporter (John Krasinski, "The Office") hoping for a big story gets it, but other media - as well as environmentalists and politicians - move in for their own piece of it, as does the journalist's environmentally concerned ex-girlfriend (Drew Barrymore). Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, Tim Blake Nelson ("O Brother, Where Art Thou?") and Dermot Mulroney also star. DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by director Ken Kwapis; deleted scenes. *** (PG: P) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
