Rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes

MAIDEN is the inspirational story of how Tracy Edwards, a 24-year old cook on charter boats, became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World in 1989.   Her dream was opposed on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it; the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure; and potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity.

“A real crowd-pleaser with a strong finish.” – Tara Brady, Irish Times

“An incredible story, and [director] Holmes keeps a sharp eye on its cultural commentary to make it a part of a contemporary conversation.” – Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com

“A rousing, real-life, feminist adventure tale.” – Caryn James, Hollywood Reporter
