If you haven’t seen “Maiden” yet, you’re missing out on one of the year’s best films.
Edge-of-your-seat exciting and blessed with numerous unexpected and dramatically satisfying story lines, the documentary is much more compelling than even its once-in-a-lifetime story line would indicate.
The focus is 1989’s first all-women crew to compete in the grueling Whitbread Round the World yacht race, at 32,000-plus miles the longest contest on Earth — and what a saga it turns out to be, filled with grit and daring in the face of conflict, fear, and life-threatening situations.
“Maiden” is playing in select theaters around the country.
