Reviews

I came for the camp, stayed for the layered storytelling, and left with tears running down my face, completely moved and encouraged by the women of GLOW.

-Eliot Glazer- New York Magazine

A beautiful and touching documentary about one of the most groundbreaking shows to ever feature such an inspiring group of powerful women.
