A Genuine Documentary
11 August 2014 | by steve-t-duffySee all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this film. As others have mentioned this movie is about the maturing of a young teenager into a young woman through her sailing journey. What I've enjoyed most about this film is the genuine aspect of her journey, she wasn't handed a million dollar sailing yacht with enough tech to sail itself around the world. Laura and her father picked up a relatively inexpensive and broken down boat and fixed it up themselves. At her launch there was only a handful of people seeing her off and her own mother didn't make it. There was no huge fanfare and you had the feeling that the general public never thought she would make it. Laura didn't have a camera crew or support boats following her around. The at sea filming was done by herself and very insightful as to what was going through her head at various stages of the journey.

This film is a coming of age film and challenges us to rethink what is possible when we set our minds to a particular task.

I've watched the Abby Sunderland and just couldn't compare the two. This film was inspiring as it was a great story.
