Movie Info

This documentary follows the inspiring stories of five Ethiopian women who suffer from devastating childbirth injuries. Rejected by their husbands and ostracized by their communities, these women are left to spend the rest of their lives in loneliness and shame. Instead they make the long and arduous journey to Fistula Hospital in Addis Abba where they reclaim their lost dignity. The trials they endure--and their attempts to rebuild their lives--tell a universal story of hope, courage, and transformation.

Will leave you speechless two times over -- first with despair, then with joy.

February 29, 2008 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The filmmakers' restraint is admirable in this era of overheated editorializing.

February 21, 2008

A complex and quietly devastating indictment of chauvinist societies that see women as lovers, mothers and servants, and treat anyone who canâ(TM)t fulfill those roles as a nonperson.

February 8, 2008 | Rating: 5/5

Mary Olive Smith and Amy Bucher feel no need to overlay this health-care calamity with pious outrage.

February 5, 2008

If pic's B.O. potential seems slight, the same can't be said of the film's impact on awareness of Africa, altruism and the lifelong misery caused by reparable medical conditions in areas where the closest road can mean a three-day hike.

January 8, 2008

A powerful, resonant, cautionary tale.

Audience Reviews for A Walk to Beautiful

Heartbreaking yet hopeful. One never realizes how lucky they are until they see what others go through... and this film really shows what it's like for these women. Congrats to those that run the hospitals and donate their time and energy into such a great purpose.
