Follow-Up to Last Week’s Blog Post

luna the whale movie

If last week’s blog post was depressing in any way, I have a sweet follow-up! Definitely still see the movie Blackfish, but watch The Whale too! (It’s also on Netflix.)

The Whale is a true story of a young, wild killer whale (an orca, nicknamed Luna), who lost contact with his family on the coast of British Columbia and turned up alone in a narrow stretch of sea between mountains (called Nootka Sound). In most cases, when an orca gets separated from its family it usually fades away and dies. This young orca was different. He was alone, but he didn’t fade away. There weren’t any familiar orcas in Nootka Sound, but there were people, in boats and on the shore. So he made contact, and people welcomed him. Most of them. This contact did not turn out to be simple. It was….. The story goes on, but its a good one. It’s true, and the footage in the film is all of real moments. It’s a great movie!
