Way back in 1988 the story of a fam­ily of three grey whales trapped in the ice in Bar­row, Alaska, had the US and parts of the world whipped into a frenzy of emo­tion and con­ser­va­tion. Now we get the be­hind- the- scenes tele movie telling of the tale which saw an Alaskan­based re­porter ( John Krasin­ski) and his Green­peace ex- girl­friend ( Drew Bar­ry­more) lead­ing the charge to free the mighty mam­mals be­fore they drowned. Cer­tainly heavy on the sen­ti­ment and with a straight­for­ward telling but the feel­good story should be a fam­ily favourite and it’s all very in­spi­ra­tional.
