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 and it was a lot of fun to see these three icons from 24 years ago.
While there are a few parts that looked forced and uncomfortable, this is a truly “feel good” movie about diverse groups who band together to help save Wilma, Fred and their baby, BamBam.
