To The Arctic 2012

     Meryl Streep narrates this IMAX documentary following a mother polar bear and her twin seven-month-old cubs as they travel through the Arctic landscape.  It’s a tough job for a polar bear mother with the ice melting sooner and melting more.  She has to find food for herself and her two cubs plus keep track of hungry male polar bears thinking about eating the cubs.  Polar bears are closely related to the brown bear but they have adapted to the cold temperatures.  Their coats have turned white for camouflage and their noses are longer to smell for food. 
     Very interesting with stunning cinematography showing the bears swimming underwater.  A furry face illustrating climate change is real and ongoing.  3 1/2* (I liked this movie)

40 min, Doc directed by Greg MacGillivray with Meryl Streep as the narrator.
Note:  Blockbuster 3*, imdb 5.5 out of 10, 67% critic 67% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
