Grit and joy mingle with tears and pride in this skillfully documented series about the first professional women's Australian rules football league. Fearless: The Inside Story of the AFLW lovingly tells the story of women whose passion it has been to break the glass ceiling of a hard-hitting contact sport. At the peak of their athletic form, these women are unapologetically joyful when they take to the field. Their coaches (all male, as it happens) lovingly support their "girls," guiding them with commitment and grace through all aspects of their sporting lives.

Parents and teens can watch this one with the awe deserving of women who break barriers. The storytelling of the documentary flows well without indulging in overly dramatic gossip.
