We really liked this film. It’s entertaining for adults and kids and a great movie to watch together, helps meld historical past and have discussions like what is feminism and do you think the past was fair to girls? Love the characters. Due expect some violence, there is an attempted drowning, a knife fight, and gun violence. They say hell a lot. Other mild swears. But younger kids I’ll have th language sail over them. Older kids will know better.

My daughter loves it!

Me and my 11 year old daughter watched this movie and she loves it and so do I! I am a big fan of feminism and good role models in movies. Enola is a very inspirational, independent character that kids like my Aliza should look up to!
