14-year-old Laura Dekker sets out on a two-year voyage in pursuit of her dream to become the youngest person ever to sail around the world alone.
7/10 – Entertaining but ultimately a bit underwhelming, however you cannot fault the achievement. The film is a great way of proving her doubters wrong, and demonstrating her sought after independence and freedom. The opening scenes, and the negative reviews that have come afterwards citing her ‘ego’ and ‘arrogance’, are clearly being mistaken for being self-assured and ambitious. I can’t imagine at the age of 14 having the foresight, technical ability and courage to do what she has done, and this documentary is a well edited, intimate portrayal of her incredible feat.
