Big Miracle (DVD)

Friday, Aug 17, 2012

While reporter Adam Carlson is on assignment in Barrow, Alaska, he stumbles across the story of three trapped whales. Big Miracle, a movie inspired by a true story, happened in 1988. It shows actual footage of the events that unfolded in this remote part of Alaska. Footage includes Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings and Mike Wallace. It was a lot of fun to see these three icons from 24 years ago. It’s a story about diverse groups who band together to help save, Wilma, Fred and their baby, BamBam. There were a few parts that looked forced and uncomfortable but, aside from those, this movie is truly one of those “feel good” pieces.
