The Eagle Huntress

Daisy Ridley of Star Wars: The Force Awakens narrates this lovely, family-friendly documentary about Aisholpan, a 13-year-old Kazakh girl who defies generations of tradition to become the first female in her family to train and hunt with eagles. It may not be as rigorous as a more adult work of nonfiction. (Parts are undoubtedly staged for the camera, and the girl power message is laid thick with a tune by Sia.) Nonetheless, the high-mountain cinematography is crisp and starkly beautiful, and our gal Aisholpan makes for an unlikely and inspiring young heroine. 87 minutes G.
