18. Raising the Bar (2016)
Raising the Bar’ revolves around Kelly, an ace gymnast who gets injured and is shunned by the team coach (and her father) along with her other teammates. As her parents are on the verge of a separation and notwithstanding the humiliation any more, Kelly moves to Australia with her mother. Kelly, in Australia, at her new high school starts coaching Nicola, her friend, who’s a part of her school’s gymnastics team. Despite being continued to be criticised on the social media for her “defeat” in the US, Kelly continues to coach Nicole and helps her win the competition. ‘Raising the Bar’ is your regular “rising from the ashes” story with a really competitive sport in the backdrop that’s worth your time.
17. Girlhood (2014)
Marieme is parting from her oppressive family and starts a new life after meeting a group of three free-spirited girls. She changes her name, her dress code, and quits school to be accepted into the gang, hoping that this will be a way to freedom. Directed by Céline Sciamma, this French film full of twists has an amazing script and brilliant performances. Karidja Touré especially executes a powerful performance in self-discovery and search for a new life. Although the “Girlhood” is not especially aesthetically pleasing, it has a female-centric and empowerment-driven theme that is very well executed. While it is not the type of movie for everyone, it’s definitely worth a try.
