Fearless
9 February 2020 | by conrad_laurieSee all my reviews

A fearless and strong young woman shows us that strength is so much more than meets the eye. She also shows us what it's like to live in a world of average people who tend to allow fear to guide them.

See the world through the eyes of someone else. This movie offers such an opportunity. An absolutely beautiful and amazing story that unfolds slowly and tenderly. It is 100% worth the watch.
