Movie Info

Skater Girl is a coming-of-age story about confidence, courage, and the profound impact of blazing your own trail. Set in a remote village in Rajasthan, India, the film follows Prerna (Rachel Saanchita Gupta in her debut performance), a local teen living a life bound by tradition and duty to her parents. But when London-bred advertising executive Jessica (Amy Maghera) arrives in the village to learn more about her late father's childhood, Prerna and the other local children are introduced to an exciting new adventure thanks to Jessica and her old friend (Jonathan Readwin) who cruises into town on a skateboard. The kids become infatuated with the sport, skating through the village, disrupting everything and everyone around them. Determined to empower and encourage their newfound passion, Jessica sets out on an uphill battle to build the kids their own skatepark, leaving Prerna with a difficult choice between conforming to society's expectations of her or living out her dream of competing in the National Skateboarding Championships.

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (2)

  • There will be no kick-flipping of clichés in Makijany's script. What's novel are simply her images of Prerna - whose name means "inspiration" - zipping through her village's curved alleyways and dusty marketplace

  • Skater Girl might be a push toward following your dreams, but the end result is a movie that feels more driven by delivering good intentions than telling a fully realized story.

  • Skater Girl belongs to Rachel Saanchita Gupta-her face is the movie's heartbeat.

  • Still, this feature debut from Manjari Makijany, a production assistant on Wonder Woman, is efficient enough to hit the right emotive buttons and make us root for Prerna, right through to the lightly moving finale.

  • No matter how impossible the scenario, it's always lovely to see a young girl take flight.

  • A great movie about skateboarding ... it captures the iconoclastic freedom and rebellion skateboarding has so often represented.

  • For an all-too-rare PG sports movie designed to inspire young women (and kids in general) to embrace their interests and find their courage, this movie does a lot right.

  • What Skater Girl captures with its young leads is nothing short of magic. Scenes of the village children getting their skateboards, practicing in the park, and eventually competing in a local competition are effervescent with joy.
