The Film has Received Positive Reviews So Far

True Spirit currently has an approval rating of 75% on Rotten Tomatoes, signaling positive reviews. Critics have praised the film for sending out an inspirational message in the backdrop of an entertaining screenplay.

The official synopsis of the film reads, “When Jessica Watson sets out to be the youngest person to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world, she must overcome her greatest fear as she navigates the world’s most challenging stretches of ocean. Based on a true story.”

Apart from Watson, the film also stars Alyla Browne as Young Jessica Watson, Cliff Curtis as Ben Bryant, Anna Paquin as Julie Watson, Josh Lawson as Roger Watson, Todd Lasance as Craig Atherton, Bridget Webb, Vivien Turner, and Stacy Clausen.

True Spirit is directed by Sarah Spillane, who has co-written the script along with Cathy Randall and Rebecca Banner. Resonate Entertainment, The Rebel Fleet, Sunstar Entertainment, and Martin Chase Productions serve as the producers.

Talking about the project, Spillane had said in an interview, “I think I could really relate to the plight of a young girl in a somewhat male-dominated field who had a dream and was told ‘no.’ I think a lot of young people can. But despite the odds and despite the knockdowns Jessica proceeded and accomplished what many said was impossible.”

“Sailing aside, I think the essence of this story is, for me, it was incredibly inspirational and something I was really interested in exploring: how the pursuit of this dream affected Jessica and attracted the interest of so many people around the world,” she added.
