The Eye Of The Dolphin 

Michael Sellers' family-oriented film is affirming only in an amateurish connect-the-dots sort of way.

This family-oriented film from Michael Sellers has its heart in the right place -- and its cameras in a lovely bit of the Bahamas -- but a poorly developed story and clunky acting does it no favors. Teen troublemaker Alyssa (Carly Schroeder) decamps to the islands to meet the father she never knew she had. Hawk (Adrian Dunbar) runs a low-budget dolphin research center (he has just two dolphins). Subplots involving absent mothers, a wild dolphin, the island's tourist trade and conch-eating all wrap up in a deeply unbelievable conclusion that re-affirms all that is good and pure and true and dolphin. It's affirming only in an amateurish connect-the-dots sort of way. Only one dot goes astray -- a mysterious island boy who we see spying on Alyssa repeatedly, but whose presence is never explained. Starts Fri., Aug. 24. Loews
