Movie Info

A conservative Indo-Canadian family in small-town British Columbia must come to terms with a devastating secret: three sisters were sexually abused by an older relative beginning in their childhood years. After remaining silent for nearly two and a half decades, the sisters finally decide to come forward-not only to protect other young relatives, but to set an example for their daughters as well.


Critic Reviews for Because We Are Girls

All Critics (5)

Its very frank discussion of sexual violence will be difficult for some viewers but it has important things to say, especially to other survivors and to those who want to learn how to give them the support that they need.

March 6, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

In the end, Because We Are Girls is about overcoming trauma with others' help and ending traditions that enable predators. All messages worth your attention.

February 14, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Too much jumping back and forth between time and perspective distracts from the overall impact of the film's message.

July 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The film's innate humanism, and the thoughtful qualities of its sisterly subjects, emphasize their disturbing past without sensationalizing it.

July 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The film does a capable job at what it's doing -- but the repetition of this genre of sexual violence documentary speaks to a stagnation in society, where we are not progressing when it comes to helping and protecting the survivors of assault.
