The English-language remake of Patrice Leconte’s award-winning French film of the same name, ‘Man on the Train’ stars Donald Sutherland and musician Larry Mullen, Jr. in his acting debut.
A mysterious criminal (Mullen Jr.) rolls into a small town planning to knock off the local bank, assuming it will go off without a hitch. But when he encounters a retired poetry professor (Sutherland), his plans take an unlikely turn. With no place to stay, the professor generously welcomes him into his home. As the two men talk, a bond forms between these two polar opposites, and surprising moments of humor and compassion emerge. As they begin to understand each other more, they each examine the choices they’ve made in their lives, secretly longing to live the type of lifestyle the other man has lived, based on the desire to escape their own.

‘Dolphin Tale’ is inspired by the amazing true story of a brave dolphin and the compassionate strangers who banded together to save her life. Swimming free, a young dolphin is caught in a crab trap, severely damaging her tail. She is rescued and transported to the Clearwater Marine Hospital, where she is named Winter. But her fight for survival has just begun. Without a tail, Winter’s prognosis is dire. It will take the expertise of a dedicated marine biologist, the ingenuity of a brilliant prosthetics doctor, and the unwavering devotion of a young boy to bring about a groundbreaking miracle–a miracle that might not only save Winter but could also help scores of people around the world. The real Winter, who plays herself in ‘Dolphin Tale,’ today serves as a symbol of courage, perseverance and hope to millions of people–both able and disabled–who have been touched by her remarkable story of recovery and rehabilitation.
