is a Dove-approved-for-all-ages, family-friendly film. It covers the topics of courage, faith, and forgiveness.
ABOUT THE FILM:
After losing her parents at a young age, 14-year-old Annabel lives with her fisherman grandfather on an island in the Bahamas. She is happy and well-adjusted, and surrounded by loving neighbors and her "best friend" – a dolphin named Mitzy. A dilemma comes when her maternal grandparents arrive with a shifty lawyer and plan to take her back to New York with them.
Without giving away too much of the story, I can tell you it has the same overtones as the 1960's TV series, FLIPPER
, but updated to modern times. If you are old enough to remember this fun, family- oriented TV series, you know it involved an extraordinarily intelligent dolphin that was "best friends" with two main teenage characters, Sandy and Bud, and he often helped rescue one (or both) from a dangerous situation surrounding the sea. The TV series was entertaining and full of family values. It is the same with DOLPHIN ISLAND. While it may not be the best film I have ever seen, it was good, and I would recommend it for families and/or youth groups. You can even download a FREE 5-Session DISCUSSION GUIDE
to help with group discussions.
