With simple storytelling, the film allows its star, Velasquez, to shine, and with her endless reserves of positive energy, eloquent speaking and willingness to be vulnerable, it's no wonder millions of people have already found her inspirational.
Her story would be inspiring in and of itself, but Velasquez is such an effervescent, charismatic subject, she can't help but win your affection as well as your respect.
The makers of "A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velasquez Story" leave a few too many questions unanswered, but their subject's immense optimism steamrolls through the documentary's shortcomings.
Velásquez is a remarkable individual, and her message should not go unheeded.
She's inexhaustible, seemingly everywhere at once and, throughout director Sara Hirsh Bordo's unblinking, well-directed film, she is absolutely and fearlessly herself. Which is exactly as it should be -- the world needs Lizzie Velasquez.
A Brave Heart raises the question: What makes a hero? What combination of bravery, ambition, and narcissism drives a person to advocacy on an international stage?
... it's a very direct film, a lovely portrait of family and strength and just how far one voice can carry, especially when amplified in the right ways.
"A Beautiful Heart" isn't ambitious in its style or structure, but it is entirely effective at communicating its encouraging message to the audience.
A Brave Heart is a powerful portrait of one of the most determined and authentic people you'll ever encounter.
A life-affirming doc if ever there was one, A Brave Heart is a litmus test for gauging compassion, one I would recommend everyone take immediately.
Well-intentioned documentary about a young woman afflicted with a horrifically disfiguring genetic disorder would like to be inspirational but feels exploitative.
Outstanding role model urges kids to stand up to bullies.
