If you grew up watching Flipper, as I did,have a soft spot in your heart for our fellow mammal-the dolphin, as I do, you HAVE to watch The Cove. It can be rented on iTunes. It is at times hard to watch- but not impossible.It is moving, suspenseful, enthralling and even uplifting.
The man behind Flipper, Rick O'Barry, has dedicated his life to saving them. He feels responsible for what has happened to dolphins because of the success of Flipper.
This movie is remarkable. The movie brought home to me how beautiful nature is, how much we humans have done to destroy it and how much we need to do to try to rectify it.
I feel SO guilty now for ever having swam with dolphins at a resort hotel.
I will NEVER go to Sea World again.
To honor them-watch the movie.
And watch till the very very end- there is a snippet there that will make you smile BIG..
This movie is OSCAR worthy. I sure hope it wins.
