Girls of the Sun (Les filles du soleil)

Critics Consensus

Girls of the Sun has the best of intentions, but this worthy - and thoroughly timely - story is fatally undermined by its clumsily overbearing execution.

  • "Girls of the Sun" has an air of authenticity and grit that's convincing, and Farahani, an Iranian-born actress, makes us care.

  • "Girls of the Sun" is a film of admirable ambition but vexingly uneven execution.

    Apr 17, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • [I]f only more of "Girls of the Sun" had that empowering sentiment as a primary aim, the filmmaker's earnest intentions would manifest more organically.

  • Director and co-writer Eva Husson awkwardly combines taut action with treacly melodrama.

  • It doesn't stint on war-movie tropes and cliché-filled speeches, sometimes to its detriment. It fares better in recognizing the humanity and determination of the female soldiers.

    Apr 11, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "Girls of the Sun," unlike the women who populate it, is weak and often corny.
