Movie Description(Click Here To Hide)
Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski star in this big screen adaptation of the amazing true story that inspired the world and captured the hearts of millions. When a family of gray whales is trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle, a small-town reporter (Krasinski) teams up with his volunteer-environmentalist ex (Barrymore) to rally an unlikely coalition of Alaskan natives, oil tycoons and the Russian and American military to set aside their differences and free the whales before it's too late. Kristen Bell, Dermot Mulroney & Ted Danson co-star in this feel-good family movie, which is based on the real-life events of 1988's Operation Breakthrough, detailed in Thomas Rose's book "Freeing the Whales".
