"The Eagle Huntress" is all at once an inspiring story for children of all ages to believe that they can do anything, a reflection of the unfairness of gender roles and a rare and unique look at a remote part of the world.
Ariel Scotti, New York Daily News
The movie's restrained second half stuns, ranking as one of the most magical stretches of nonfiction filmmaking in recent years.
Joey Nolfi, Entertainment Weekly
Aisholpan's sincerity and joy shines through [any] concerns. She's a genuine hero for the 21s century and her story is not to be missed.
