Punch Like a Girl

Canada, 2008


Savoy “Kapow” Howe empowers women by teaching them the finer points of boxing. “The art of not quitting” is her mantra, which she takes to heart both in and out of the ring. In one of the most dramatic fights ever recorded for a film, Savoy takes on her nemesis “Hail Mary” Barrett.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
