Maiden, about the all-women crew of sailors that knocked the sexist world in 1989, which was released last Friday in the US by Sony Pictures Classics, received critical acclaim.


“A rousing, real-life, feminist adventure tale” - Hollywood Reporter

“This dazzling doc from director Alex Holmes proves these female pioneers are still a cause for celebration” - Rolling Stone

“Holmes uses the archival material smartly, weaving it in to create a sense of you-are-there immediacy and to build the pace as the Maiden sails, stalls, and rushes toward the finish.” - New York Times
