Critic Reviews for Girl Rising

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

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.

March 7, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for Girl Rising

'Girl Rising'. Powerful, deeply moving stories (some more effective) about hopes and dreams in the developing world. A much needed perspective.
