Quotes

Tracy Edwards: We were a real mixed bag of mostly dropouts, misfits and gypsies and nomads. We were all running away from something, but we were family units... I mean surreal family units.

A talking head documentary with a strong message
23 October 2019 | by kingmasadaSee all my reviews

Despite half of it being a talking head documentary, which I'm not for, the combination of the powerful women telling their story with the images shot in the eighties of the race is absolutely stunning. You cheer them on because they're there to set the trademark for all women after them, opening a door for them for opportunities. These girls are saying now again that if you listen to what people tell you you can't do, human kind would not have been great at all. And that is a strong message that I will take to heart.
