Berlin native Austin Stowell will be having two special screenings in Berlin at Rave Motion Pictures on Friday, Sept. 23 at the 7:15 p.m. and 7:35 p.m. showings of his movie 'Dolphin Tale."
Stowell, a Berlin High School graduate, will introduce both showings, and then attend the 7:35 p.m. showing with a question and answer session plus autograph signing following the screening.
The movie is about a young boy, Sawyer Nelson (Nathan Gamble), who befriends Winter, an injured bottlenose dolphin who loses her tail due to being entrapped in a crab trap,in the Indian River in Fort Pierce, Florida. He motivates everyone around him to help save the dolphin by creating a prosthetic appendage to replace the dolphin's missing tail. Harry Connick Jr. plays a vet who rescues the mammal and brings her to the marine hospital he runs. Ashley Judd plays the boy's mother while Morgan Freeman is a doctor who creates a prosthetic limb for Winter.
Stowell plays an injured athlete who is fighting some of the same battles the dolphin is fighting.
