Storyline

A BRAVE HEART: The Lizzie Velasquez Story is a documentary following the inspiring journey of 26 year old, 58 pound Lizzie from cyber-bullying victim to anti-bullying activist. Born with a rare syndrome that prevents her from gaining weight, Elizabeth "Lizzie" Velasquez was first bullied as a child in school for looking different and, later online, as a teenager when she discovered a YouTube video labeling her "The World's Ugliest Woman." The film chronicles unheard stories and details of Lizzie's physical and emotional journey up to her multi-million viewed TEDx talk, and follows her pursuit from a motivational speaker to Capitol Hill as she lobbies for the first federal anti-bullying bill. Written by Sara Hirsh Bordo

incredible, inspiring movie. not a dry eye in the theater, moving and hopeful. can't say enough great things about this film and its filmmakers. Lizzie is an inspiration - she is a role model for all. this movie is worth seeing - its entertaining and well done. there wasn't a dry eye in the theater and everyone stayed to discuss & provide meaningful dialogue. i am amazed by this film and everyone needs to see it. in a landscape where there are so few movies that inspire - this is one that hits a chord with many. it makes us rise up and become better versions of ourselves. it was a few hours well spent. truly amazing. more than impressed with the director and her ability to capture the true spirit of Lizzie and those around her. see this film now.
