    My opinion has changed about keeping whales in captivity and using them for entertainment because I was never aware how they did the whole process. I never knew the whales were taken away from their families and forced to live in uncomfortable positions that they aren’t used to. The main point in this movie that changed my perspective is knowing that many whales are taken away from their own mothers at a very young age. I could never imagine being taken away from my mother, and how I would be able
