Critic Reviews for Girl Rising
The price of good intentions is that it looks and feels like an extended public-service announcement for goodness.
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.
Illuminating and ultimately hopeful, despite the horrible circumstances depicted, "Girl Rising" stands as a testament to the power of information.
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.
Audience Reviews for Girl Rising
I don't really know if I should review this film because I only got to see about 2/3 of it and there were no subtitles and so much of it was lost to me. Despite this, though, there were certainly some powerful pieces to it.
If you want to watch a great documentary, check out Girl Rising in Netflix!! It's a beautiful and powerful film about deeply moving stories about hopes and dreams in the developing world. A much needed perspective of why young girls need an education!! It's heartbreaking and so scary what is happening to young girls in poor countries!
What an extraordinary collection of stories! For all the girls and women in your life, take the time to watch this documentary. Knowledge is power!
