15-year-old Frances lost her mother in a fight. The same fight which led to her father being locked up in jail for the last ten years. Frances has never forgiven the police sergeant who she feels is responsible for this. She's got fighting in her blood, just like her idol Muhammad Ali. And like Ali, she wants to be the Greatest too.

Strongly evokes a rural world stuck mid-way between restrictive age-old traditions and budding modern tendencies.

You sincerely want to believe that the film will tackle its subject matter with heart and grit -- but hopes are dashed by the opening five minutes, a disastrous melange of trauma and broken dreams that is handled about as subtly as a mean uppercut.

September 7, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
