And this first week of September started with a bang by accepting the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and posting the video. And then right after the Labour Day weekend gave a new presentation called The Inspirational Power of Celebrities and their Movies with Dr. Samita Nandy of the Centre for Media and Celebrity Studies. Then the day after the 39th Toronto International Film Festival started and I was then invited to my first film festival party in years. I feel like I am getting back into the world!
The whirlwind continued as I got home from this party and received sneak preview tickets for Dolphin Tale 2 for early the next morning. The theatre was full of kids which I should have known! Unexpectedly, I had a very emotional reaction to the film’s themes on the rescue, rehab and release of dolphins and other water creatures in trouble. I saw myself.
Dolphin Tale 2 (2014)
The family drama film, Dolphin Tale 2, is a sequel with more true stories from Clearwater Marine Aquarium with Dr. Clay Haskett (Harry Connick, Jr.) his young daughter Hazel (Cozi Zuehisdorff) and Sawyer (Nathan Gamble) who originally discovered Winter the dolphin and her prosthetic tale. This story deals with letting go of the water animals the kids become attached to as well as letting go of one’s current life in order to experience a bigger world. See: movie trailer
• Letting go
• Passion & perseverance
At the end of the film they show real footage of Winter and the new dolphin Hope with other children and adults with prosthetic limbs. It's very moving to watch. And then the final credits say the words Rescue, Rehab, Release and... Inspire. If you want to be inspired on many levels to stay positive during the storms of your own life I highly recommend Dolphin Tale 2!
