"A sharply observed, deceptively gentle
film, reportedly the first feature ever directed
by a Saudi woman. The movie presents the
facts of its heroine's life with calm authority
and devastating effectiveness."

-AO Scott,
New York Times

“Illuminating and ultimately hopeful,
despite the horrible circumstances

“Girl Rising” stands as
a testament to the power of information.”

"The human life teeming through "Carandiru," Hector Babenco's sprawling portrait of Brazil's criminal class crowded within a notorious São Paulo penitentiary, exudes a throbbing flesh-and-blood intensity so compelling that it's impossible to avert your eyes."


-Stephen Holden, New York Times
