It starts with a warning: “The ocean’s always trying to kill you, it doesn’t take a break.” But the terrors awaiting the subjects of Alex Holmes’ crowd-pleasing documentary “Maiden” go far beyond the sea itself.
Tracing the journey of forward-thinking female sailor Tracy Edwards, “Maiden” unspools a heart-pounding race around the world, but the true challenges facing Edwards and her all-woman crew include institutionalized sexism, a media circus unable to look beyond a splashy story, and crushing self-doubt.
"Even at its most visceral and exciting, it's the emotion at the story's core, and the higher principles at work, that make it transcendent." - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
