"Dolphin Tale 2" movie quotes return to the inspirational story, based on true events, of dolphin Winter at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. The drama sequel was written and directed by Charles Martin Smith, who also created the original "Dolphin Tale" film in 2011. "Dolphin Tale 2" hit theaters on September 12, 2014.
In "Dolphin Tale 2," rescued dolphin Winter, along with her prosthetic tail, is still living at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium along with staff members Dr. Clay Haskett (Harry Connick, Jr.), Hazel Haskett (Cozi Zuehlsdorff) and Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Morgan Freeman), among others. But Winter is lonely and desperately needs to be paired with another female dolphin or she will be taken away in 30 days.
So when the aquarium gets a call that a small female dolphin has been found, Sawyer Nelson (Nathan Gamble), son of Lorraine (Ashley Judd), sees an opportunity to save Winter. The staff are hesitant to pair the new dolphin, named Hope, with Winter but Sawyer urges them to at least try rather than live with the regret of not giving it a chance."Dolphin Tale 2" brings a light-hearted story to theaters packed with films such as "The Identical," "Frontera," "The Longest Week," "The November Man," "The Congress," "Life of Crime," "Starred Up," "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," "If I Stay," "When the Game Stands Tall," "Are You Here," "The Expendables 3," "Let's Be Cops," "Life After Beth," "Frank," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," "The Hundred-Foot Journey "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Get On Up," "Hercules," "Lucy," "Magic in the Moonlight."
