An unexpected critical hit of the fall season, The Whale opens November 4 in Cleveland, after winning coveted Critics’ Picks endorsements from both the New York Times and the Washington Post.
The film was brought here by Ohio University alumnus Eric Desatnik ('01), who joined superstars Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson as the film’s executive producers.
“The Whale emphasizes the importance of family and home,” said Desatnik, “so to be able to bring this film to my family and to my hometown is a dream come true.”
The Whale, the true story of a young killer whale who lost contact with his pod and tried to make friends with humans, runs from November 4 through November 10 in both the Capitol Theatre in Cleveland and the Chagrin Cinemas in Chagrin Falls. It is rated G.
