Eye of The Dolphin

Family/Drama Rated PG. Fourteen year old Alyssa (Schroeder) has been living with her Grandmother Lucy (Ross) since the death of her mother a year ago. It's been a tough year for both of them and Lucy decides it's time for Alyssa to go to the Bahamas to live with Hawk (Dunbar), dedicated dolphin researcher and the father she never knew she had. Alyssa's arrival on the island comes at a decisively inconvenient time for Hawk, who is busy fighting greedy politicians and experts who are determined to turn his research center into a tacky tourist attraction. It's a prickly relationship between Hawk and Alyssa, but Tamika (Adams), Hawks girlfriend, and Daniel (Harris), Tamika's father, smooth the way. Alyssa soon adjusts to island life and discovers the gift she shares with her father for communicating with dolphins, a skill which leads her into a powerful relationship with a wild dolphin which her father, for legitimate scientific reasons, cannot condone. But when the powers-that-be threaten to close down her father's research station, it is Alyssa and her wild friend who hold the key, and have the power to bring all parties together. Carly Schroeder gives great performance here as a young girl trying to find her way in the world after the drowning death of her mother only to be introduced to her she thought was dead and a new exotic environment she doesn't like at first. This young girl is reaping with talent and given the right roles is going to be a big star. The rest of the film's cast is just as incredible including Katharine Ross and Adrian Dunbar and let's not forget the other star of the film, the beautiful landscapes of the Bahama's. You may not see a more beautiful film again. The story is well-constructed, giving the main characters time to develop before introducing the dolphins which really makes you care for each one of them and their feeling that much more. Each character is believable and real. The interaction with the dolphins is incredible and it's amazing how smart these animals are and how they interact with humans. You do not get to see many film's this beautiful with such a good message, it's both heartfelt and inspirational, a gem for the entire family. Own it June 5th 2007. The DVD comes with bonus features that include:
