Lindsey Stirling: Brave Enough Review
In a new series of posts, I wanted to share with you my thoughts on some of the original programming from YouTube Red, the subscription service from YouTube that brings subscribers shows, movies and more. The first production i wanted to share with you guys is Lindsay Stirling: Brave Enough, an original documentary film that explores Lindsay Stirling’s Brave Enough tour and the emotional journey she went through to make the record and the tour a reality. Here is the synopsis:
Beginning on the eve of her thirtieth birthday, “Brave Enough,” documents violinist Lindsey Stirling over the past year as she comes to terms with the most challenging and traumatic events of her life. Through her art, she seeks to share a message of hope and courage and yet she must ask herself the question, “Am I Brave Enough?” Capturing her personal obstacles and breakthrough moments during the “Brave Enough,” tour, the film presents an intimate look at this one-of- a-kind artist and her spectacular live performances inspired by real-life heartbreak, joy, and love.
The one word I would to describe this powerful film is “emotional”. The emotional impact of Lindsey’s story and how this album and tour came to life brought tears to my eyes. The music performances she gives are breathtakingly beautiful, and when you hear the stories being told of her life and the inspiration behind her music, it makes the performances that much more powerful.
Overall, this was a beautifully shot film with powerful and real life moments that so many of us can relate to, but with this film Lindsey Stirling shows us that it’s ok to feel these powerful emotions, but if we’re brave enough, we don’t have to be crippled by them. It’s a spectacular film that deserves to be seen, and so I give this film a 10/10 rating. Be sure to check out this film on YouTube Red today.
