Paladin will release “The Whale,” a documentary narrated by Ryan Reynolds about a young and lonely killer whale who makes waves when he tries to befriend humans in a small town. Journalist Michael Parfit directs with producer-cinematographer Suzanne Chisholm. They spent several years chronicling the whale, “Luna,” and her adventures. Reynolds is from the same region of Western Canada where the film takes place.
