A magnificent movie for everyone!
25 October 2016 | by (ny) – See all my reviews

Beyond the story, which is one of the most moving and inspiring ones that I've seen in a very long time, the photography and music took this movie to a level of perfection! You could hear everyone in the audience laugh, hold their breath and applaud throughout the movie. I think this film should be shown in every school. Both girls and boys will be empowered by this movie. They will be riveted to their seat. Everyone, no matter how confident, will feel inspired to do more, try more, reach higher. The innate bravery of this young girl and her belief that anything is possible, mixed with a father's complete support and love for his child is moving, exciting and was a very special experience. Please do not miss Eagle Huntress.
