Why it’s worth your time:

If you’re looking for an inspirational story about taking on an impossible feat — even when you’re told you won’t succeed—Maiden is a documentary worth watching. Telling the story of Tracy Edwards, a British sailor who led the first all-female sailing crew in the 1989 Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race, Maiden depicts how Edwards and her team overcame gender inequality through the power of their tenacity and the strength of female friendships.

The takeaway:

Maiden is a lesson in surviving childhood trauma, channeling energy into a worthy cause, and fighting to win — even when the majority says victory is impossible.

Watch it with:

Anyone who wants to see what happens when hope outweighs adversity, or anyone interested in catching a glimpse of women’s history and the power of female relationships.

Worth noting:

If you’ve recently lost a loved one, or if your child lost a parent or relative, this film might bring up questions about bereavement and how we move forward after loss. If you’re watching with kids, tween, or teens, be prepared to discuss how we cope and heal from the unexpected death of a parent.
