Storyline

The true story of a spirited Chickasaw daredevil whose young life in 1928 rural Oklahoma suddenly changes one Sunday afternoon. The soon-to-become famous Wiley Post lands his plane in her father's field, and a brief joyride through the clouds ignites the girl's passion for flight. Pearl Carter's thirst for thrills has found an outlet. Mentored by Post and supported by her resolute father, George, Sr., Pearl demonstrates that she has the courage and composure of a true pilot. Soon, the 12-year-old sits at the controls of a brand new Curtiss-Robin, soars with the best flight instructor available and has a landing strip for a backyard. While everyone in town is amazed, not all are delighted about Pearl's unconventional exploits. At first, her dangerous new interest troubles Lucy, Pearl's strong, forbearing Chickasaw mother. Opaletta, the Carters' eldest daughter, is aggrieved by the disproportionately close relationship her father shares with Pearl. In fact, Opal's reaction to the ...

Kind of thrown together, but watchable and family-friendly.
27 December 2010 | by (Ephrata, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

"Pearl" covers the life of a young aviatrix with a Chickasaw mother and a blind, white father during ages 12-18 in the 1920s and 30s. The same actress plays Pearl throughout all these years, which doesn't quite work. This film focuses on the love of young Pearl for her family, especially her father, and her love of flying, and the conflicts that ensue.

This movie was sponsored by the Chickasaw Nation, and has that BBC film quality rather than a Hollywood feel. Many BBC films, however, are excellent, while this one was just . . . not. Apparently it was filmed in just a few weeks, and it really shows. The acting, while not terrible, was a bit forced rather than natural. The flying "special effects" are rather transparent as well.

While it had many flaws, it wasn't boring and did wring a few tears from me anyway. It is an interesting story, and something the whole family can enjoy. I would recommend watching if you have an interest in aviation or Native American film.
