Great documentary following the real lives of female boxers
19 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an amazing, gritty, real documentary about women in boxing. It really shows the real life experiences of these women. It feels especially authentic because it's not just a documentary filmmaker following around these women. It's made by a boxer. The director, Jill Morely, is a boxer and is friends with these boxers. The film has a unique insight into the experience because it's a part of the experience.

My favorite aspect of the documentary is just how different all these boxers are. They all have unique personalities and different personal lives. It's very interesting. I recommend it, and I'm not a huge fan of documentaries.
