She sometimes has hard struggle but passes what people think women can’t do and does it with no help at all but the knowledge she learned as a young girl
Island of the Blue Dolphins I saw this film once when I was in 6th grade (over 3 years ago) as part of a class project. We were reading the book so my teacher brought this in to watch. Even though it’s been 3 years since I’ve seen it I’m ready to go back and review it. The story is of a young Native American Girl who was abandoned by her tribe (accidently) and left on her island. She befriend wolves and other wildlife as she makes her solitary life on the island for over 18 years until she was discovered. The film and book are both based on the real story of Juana Maria. The film’s acting is decent and the story id great so I can recommend it. It’s hard to find on DVD but it should still be available somewhere.
Beautiful inspiring movie for youngsters
