Big Miracle

(PG) ★★★☆☆

Based on a true story, this feel-good movie is surprisingly good, as long as you know what you’re in for. Three whales get trapped under the ice off the coast of Alaska. A slew of competing interests flock to the scene. Drew Barrymore plays a Greenpeace organizer, whose ex-boyfriend (John Krasinski) is a TV news reporter covering the story. Much of the film feels calculated, but director Ken Kwapis and a solid ensemble achieve a considerable amount.
