The Whale

Film Review - The Hollywood Reporter: The center of attention here is Luna, a young orca who, at age two, for some reason became separated from his large family, “like a child in a supermarket,” and was stranded in Nootka Sound, an ultra-scenic area more than halfway up the west coast of Vancouver Island. Backed up by images of the black-and-white “killer whale” cavorting, showing off and constantly begging for attention, Reynolds unassumingly informs that Orcas, who have about the same life spans as humans, are very social beings that spend their whole lives in extended family groups. In other words, unless he can somehow rejoin his pod, Luna will have to make do with human contact.
