Critic Reviews for Girl Rising

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (2)

  • The team of journalists and executives who hired white, American, male director Richard Robbins to make this film get props for taking on a good cause. But their noble goal doesn't justify the means.

  • The price of good intentions is that it looks and feels like an extended public-service announcement for goodness.

    April 18, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • No one would confuse the movie with a short-story collection. But it's more ambitious and effective at blunting cynicism than most consciousness-raising efforts.

    March 7, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Illuminating and ultimately hopeful, despite the horrible circumstances depicted, "Girl Rising" stands as a testament to the power of information.

    March 7, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Director Richard Robbins delights in dotting his screen with bursts of color, from a shimmering orange dress to the deep purple of a pen cap, while the stories, shaped by anecdotal brevity, are often charmingly modest.

  • 'Advocacy Cinema' has found a new, strong standard-bearer in Girl Rising; one hopes it drives the forceful change needed in our global community as powerfully as it represents a creative shift in the genre.

    'Girl Rising'. Powerful, deeply moving stories (some more effective) about hopes and dreams in the developing world. A much needed perspective.
