Movie Info

Katie Taylor fell in love with boxing at the age of six but quickly found that her avenues into the ring were blocked by the sport's traditionally sexist culture. Women were banned from boxing in Ireland, so she dressed as a boy to enter competitions. This was the first of many obstacles that intensified her drive to succeed and strengthened her relationship with her dad, who was both her coach and closest confidant.

It's a beautiful documentary, basically, and Katie Taylor comes out of it looking very well, indeed. It's a bit of a knockout.

[Katie] is shy, but honest, and Whitaker's skill and respect for his subject make this a great watch.

Buffed with stirring fight sequences, the picture stands as a polite argument for the greatness of a figure almost everyone already loves.
