Dolphins is a playful, up-close look at the dolphins of Alaska, Patagonia, and the Bahamas. What are these clever fish thinking about in this stressful time? What’s that you say? Dolphins are mammals, not fish? I guess I need to go watch this movie!

If you need any further convincing, here’s Ellen O’Connor’s review (Ellen is the museum’s Program Manager for the William L. McKnight Omnitheater, so if anyone’s an expert on giant-screen films, it’s her!):
“Narrated by Pierce Brosnan and with music by Sting, this film tells the story of the dolphin and what we can learn from these intelligent creatures. In the film, biologists work to learn about dolphin communication and how humans can interact with them. Dolphins is warm-feeling with sunny, blue ocean skies. The cinematography is amazing as it captures the life of dolphins.”
