Proving 52 is the loneliest number since the number one, THE LONELIEST WHALE: THE SEARCH FOR 52, opening at The Ross on Friday, September 10, is an engaging nature documentary about the leviathan efforts to understand our large aquatic counterparts. [A]s it wends toward that conclusion, THE LONELIEST WHALE is both invigorating and calming to watch. –Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Neither slick nor propulsive, “THE LONELIEST WHALE” gently combines aquatic adventure and bobbing meditation on our own species's environmental arrogance. –Jeanette Catsoulis, The New York Times The director and his human subjects make a case for how our knowledge of the undersea mammals' behavior has altered some of our destructive practices for the better. –Carlos Aguilar, TheWrap THE LONELIEST WHALE is showing at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center on Friday, September 10 through Thursday, September 23. Show times are available at, by consulting your newspaper, or by calling the MRRMAC film information line at 402.472.5353. The Motion Picture Association of America has rated THE LONELIEST WHALE PG (Brief Smoking|Some Unsettling Whaling Images|Language). THE LONELIEST WHALE is a cinematic quest to find the “52 Hertz Whale,” which scientists believe has spent its entire life in solitude calling out at a frequency that is different from any other whale. As the film embarks on this engrossing journey, audiences will explore what this whale’s lonely plight can teach us — not just about our changing relationship to the oceans, but to each other. Executive Produced with Leonardo DiCaprio and Adrian Grenier and directed by Joshua Zeman.
