Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Liam Neeson, Cate Blanchette, Selena Gomez and other A-list actors contribute voice performances to the film, which features original music from Academy Award winner Rachel Portman, in collaboration with Hans Zimmer. The film spotlights unforgettable girls like Sokha, an orphan who rises from the dumps of Cambodia to become a star student and an accomplished dancer; Suma, who composes music to help her endure forced servitude in Nepal and today crusades to free others; and Ruksana, an Indian "pavement-dweller" whose father sacrifices his own basic needs for his daughter's dreams. Each girl is paired with a renowned writer from her native country.

Girl Rising is a simple movie, but it has a lot to offer the viewer. I really recommend to see and put Girl Rising on the list of the best films, because Girl Rising certainly deserve it. I will tell you something. I ended up watching it four times whole movie online in the web, almost without breaks. Anyway, Documentary may boast of one of the biggest numbers of good movies. The direction is sublime. Excellent photos, tempo and editing. Great actors and great story. However, I think that well-chosen actors and an interesting script are not pushed to the background by music, because a good movie consists of many great parts. Now, watch and enjoy :).... Show more
