Storyline

A BRAVE HEART: The Lizzie Velasquez Story is a documentary following the inspiring journey of 26 year old, 58 pound Lizzie from cyber-bullying victim to anti-bullying activist. Born with a rare syndrome that prevents her from gaining weight, Elizabeth "Lizzie" Velasquez was first bullied as a child in school for looking different and, later online, as a teenager when she discovered a YouTube video labeling her "The World's Ugliest Woman." The film chronicles unheard stories and details of Lizzie's physical and emotional journey up to her multi-million viewed TEDx talk, and follows her pursuit from a motivational speaker to Capitol Hill as she lobbies for the first federal anti-bullying bill. Written by Sara Hirsh Bordo

Great message, great film.
21 September 2015 | by ronvalderramaSee all my reviews

In today's world of social media, bullying can hit fast and hard. This film does an amazing job of telling the affects of bullying and how to turn it around.

As someone who has started a company, I think the film also serves as an amazing motivator for people who dream big and go after their passion. Lizzy actually shows you a different way to measure success through her passion. I had the pleasure of meeting her at the premiere and she even took time to send my seven year old daughter a video message. Well worth watching.
