Honest, compelling and brave storytelling
15 June 2017 | by daniellesellwoodSee all my reviews

I watch a lot of sports/adventure films and a) it's rare they feature women b) they often contain a lot of ego. This is not the case with this film. This is a group of women who are modest and supportive of each other, there are no 'stars' or exhibitionists, and thank goodness no gratuitous 'sexy' shots. This is probably because the film is also made by a woman. It is honest and genuine about how hard the expedition is, it gives a fantastic insight into the relentlessness of a journey like this and the mental battles that the women go through. I both cried and gasped in awe. It is thoroughly enjoyable and really suitable for all (just one swearing moment) - show it to your kids...these women are fantastic role models for all.
