Eye of the Dolphin
Written by multiple Emmy Award Winner Wendell Morris, fourteen-year-old Alyssa has been living with her grandmother since the death of her mother a year ago. Troubled and lost, it is decided she should go to the Bahamas to live with the father she never knew she had. Caught in the difficult realization of having a father, coupled with the adjustment to island culture, she seeks refuge in the discovery of the astonishing gift she has for communicating with dolphins. But when the powers-that-be threaten to close down her father’s dolphin research facility, it is Alyssa and her wild cetacean friend who hold the key.
This movie takes a look at a young girl with some serious problems. Having lost her mother and now living with her grandmother, Alyssa is busy acting out her feelings in unhealthy ways. To add to her emotional roller coaster, her mother lied about her father being dead. This news of a father is a lot to take in for a 14-year-old girl.
Although the beautiful ocean scenery is nice, this movie is lacking. Some of the story lines sit on the back burner and never get resolved. It goes from a troubled young girl getting expelled out of school to a girl that can communicate with dolphins.
Dove cannot approve this for the family due to some inappropriate behavior.
