About the Movie
Told from a first person perspective, "Fight Like A Girl" is about women overcoming their demons through boxing, while telling a larger story about abuse, trauma, mental illness and healing. In a gritty, first-person narrative that was shot over a period of five years, filmmaker Jill Morley delves inside the little-known world of female boxers to meet the women who are passionate about fighting hard. She gets pulled in to this culture as she trains for the New York Golden Gloves. From world champions to amateurs training for local tournaments, Jill discovers they all have a lot in common. Throughout the film, how she and the other women she trains with arrive at boxing is revealed. The real emotional history, and traumas bubble up fleshing out a compelling story about women overcoming adversity in what many consider a violent sport.
I loved this story
It’s not one of those simple stories I find on PBS but a little more rough or rather real in the story line. If you enjoy a good journey you will love this. It’s not just about boxing it’s about four people finding themselves who happen to be women, who happen to use boxing to do it.
