Based on the true story of an international effort to rescue whales that were trapped in ice off the Alaskan coast in 1988. Efforts to play up the romance between leads Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski might sink this, but the real drama of the actual event and the stunning scenic cinematography might be enough to save the whale (er, film about whales).
