This is an inspiring movie that highlights the importance of education for girls in the developing world. Many of the things in the girls lives are hard - child marriage, indentured servitude, rape, and poverty. However, they are handled in such a tactful way that if your child does not already know what rape or a brothel is, they will not learn it from this movie. What they will learn is that these girls face forces of sexism and inequality, and struggle mightily for better lives through school. I took a 10 year old and felt it was entirely appropriate; she said it was "awesome" and it made her think about what life is like in other parts of the world, particulary as the girls are so relatable. It also made her appreciate her own freedoms and education.
