Girlfight : Movie Review

Girlfight, another film that will be playing mostly in art houses, is receiving knockout reviews - to go along with its top awards at recent film festivals.

Rita Kempley in the Washington Post comments that the film "packs the same emotional punch as Rocky."

Susan Wloszczyna in USA Today expresses a few qualms about the film's ending, but concludes that the filmmakers "have pulled off a coming-of-age tale that truly floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee."

And Jay Carr in the Boston Globe concludes that "Karyn Kusama's Girlfight is a terrific little uppercut of a boxing movie and close to a perfect one."
