Outstanding!!!!!
11 March 2015 | by (Los Angeles, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

This is amazing storytelling! Fascinating people doing unique, challenging things; facing their own inner demons and outside prejudices. I got totally caught up in the worlds of these amazing women and, unlike most documentaries, was drawn into the stories of their lives. It is absolutely about boxing and how women are not immediately accepted or supported in the sport. But it is also about empowerment, about reaching into yourself and battling inner demons and doubts. Really remarkable that a documentary could be so incredibly compelling. And it has a beginning, middle and very satisfying ending! I felt I went with the amazing women on their journey and got off at the last complete stop! Rockin'!! Highly recommend watching this movie!!!!!
