Great movie! Cool Characters.

GREAT MOVIE!!! Nobody's even heard of this story, it's really inspiring, and loads of cool characters. I mean, a single momma who brings her baby to Madison Square Garden? A sergeant whose the first female fighter in her unit? Everybody's heard of the Golden Gloves, but nobody's heard of the Women's side to the story. This film had me glued to my seat. The politics of it hit home too, that women are under-represented and need a place in the sports hall of fame, but the activism was understated enough to put the emotional drama first. Strongly recommend."
