I was really hopeful that this movie would be a shared WOW experience for my daughter and I. But that cat the root causes of poverty was left untouched. How helpful is it to give a girl and education if she suffers the loss of her father's health and life too early because of his work in unsafe gold mines, if she lives in a world surrounded by orphaned children living in dumps or people whose slum housing is destroyed in violent waves? If she lives in a world that disrespects women and girls so that there is no chance of equality for her. In the 60s and 70s it was all about zero population growth. That was to be the solution to poverty. Its not that its not valuable for girls to get an education, yes, I want each one to have one. But its not going to solve all of poverty any more than birth control will be the final solution. We have to talk about how too much money is controlled by too few people and all the ways that that happens and how to change it. This movie does not do that.
