Movie Info

14-year-old Laura Dekker sets out-camera in hand-on a two-year voyage in pursuit of her dream to be the youngest person ever to sail around the world alone. In the wake of a year-long battle with Dutch authorities that sparked a global storm of media scrutiny, Laura now finds herself far from land, family and unwanted attention, exploring the world in search of freedom, adventure, and distant dreams of her early youth at sea. Jillian Schlesinger's debut feature amplifies Laura's brave, defiant voice through a mix of Laura's own video and voice recordings at sea and intimate vérité footage from locations including the Galapagos Islands, French Polynesia, Australia, and South Africa.

Critic Reviews for Maidentrip

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (12)

The film is a compelling tribute to a remarkable achievement, and to a young woman who is, in her own words, "pretty bad-ass."

February 27, 2014 | Rating: 3/4

At best this functions as a pleasant aquatic travelogue; at worst it validates a teenage girl's egotism.

Maidentrip is full of sunsets and dolphins but short on introspection and drama.

January 22, 2014 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Maidentrip ends up being not necessarily about the amazing feat that Dekker accomplished, it's about finding one's true self, and enjoying the ride along the way.

January 17, 2014 | Rating: B+

What a relief it is to spend quality movie time with an adolescent girl who isn't pining for a boy or obsessed with social media.

January 17, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Before our eyes, Laura's lengthening limbs and deepening introspection become the point of a movie that begins with a child and ends with a young woman.
