The Whale Movie Overview

Dramatic retelling of the fateful last voyage of the Nantucket whaleship Essex. When the Essex is attacked and sunk by a sperm whale in November 1820, her crew take to three fragile whalers. Alone in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the men must decide whether to head for the nearest islands - a thousand miles downwind to the west - or set out on an epic journey of almost three thousand miles to reach the South American mainland. Fear of cannibals forces them to choose South America. Almost three months later, the first whaler is rescued by another whaleship. Only three men are still alive. A week later the captain's whaler is also rescued, with just two men aboard. The third whaler is never found. This is a story of human endurance and what men in extremis will do to survive.

  • Critic Reviews for The Whale. The delicate, understated dignity of the story's presentation (particularly the scenes portraying the bond between the aboriginal people and Luna) pays off with resonance, especially in the film's final stages. A congenial, though slow-starting, look at an amazing animal.

  • Or, the Whale Review – Prime Seafood Dining in Downtown Pittsburgh. Or, the Whale inside the boutique Distrikt Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh offers sustainably sourced seafood and steaks in a trendy atmosphere. On our recent visit, we appreciated the attention to detail in the food and service, as well as the creative and well-executed mouthwatering seafood dishes.

  • Complicating Luna's status is the nearby tribe of First Nations (native Canadians), who believe the whale could be the spirit of their recently deceased chief. With the law on one side, First Peoples on the other, and Luna hanging in the balance, the story follows what becomes of the killer whale who just wants to be friends.

  • The Whale Picks Review: Must Read On The Whale Sports Picks. It is a complete service for the most demanding bettors, it covers the expectations of anyone who’s willing to get inside the betting world. It is a service that has been used by several people in the world and has been shown to work properly.

  • The Whale is a thoughtful, philosophical, political and ultimately sad documentary that ponders the impulses behind, and advisability of, intense interaction between human beings and another smart species.

  • The Whale doesn’t really offer convincing answers to these questions, but it does potently address the interconnectedness between seemingly divergent species in fascinating ways. It is possible that man and beast see the world in similar ways, and for these reasons, The Whale is that rare animal documentary entirely concerned with human nature.

  • "The Squid and the Whale" is essentially about how we grow up by absorbing what is useful in our parents and forgiving what is not. Joan may cheat on her husband, but he deserves to be cheated on, and she demonstrates a faith in romance that is, after all, a lesson in optimism.

  • Community Reviews. Melville's relationship with Hawthorne is one of the most important in American literature, and I wrote THE WHALE: A LOVE STORY to capture the excitement, intensity, and profound affection that they shared. I hope you enjoy reading it!

  • Audience Reviews for Whale Rider ½ A poetic look into a different culture that really isn't too different, simply remembering that it was at one time and wanting to hold that memory.
