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.
