JEFFERSON CITY – Family Movie Night returns to the Missouri River Regional Library at 6 p.m. on Friday in the Art Gallery. Bring a folding chair, a sleeping bag, blanket or pillow and join the fun.
Because of licensing restrictions, we can’t give you the title, but we can tell you that this 2011 feature film stars Morgan Freeman and deals with a brave dolphin and the compassionate strangers who banded together to save her life.
Swimming free, a young dolphin is caught in a crab trap, severely damaging her tail. She is rescued and transported to the Clearwater Marine Hospital, where she is named Winter. But her fight for survival has just begun. Without a tail, Winter's prognosis is dire. It will take the expertise of a dedicated marine biologist, the ingenuity of a brilliant prosthetics doctor, and the unwavering devotion of a young boy to bring about a groundbreaking miracle -- a miracle that might not only save Winter but could also help scores of people around the world.
Light snacks will be provided.
Since this is an after-hours program, the library doors will be closed at 6:15 p.m.
