This inspiring story is part of American history. Pearl Carter is an inquisitive girl of the age of 12 and the apple of her blind father’s eyes. At her young age she learns how to drive an automobile to help the family by driving her father to work so that her mother can take care of her siblings. Along the way she develops a fascination for flying. When she meets pilot Wiley Post and rides in his plane, she makes the decision that this is something she wants to do. So as Wiley takes Pearl under his wing to help her with her dream, her father encourages her goal by building her an airstrip, buying an airplane and has Wiley find an instructor for her.This film is a period piece of history that is truly enjoyable. ‘Pearl” is an intriguing adventurous story of one young girl’s dream to soar the sky. Although in this day and age 12 year old girls or even boys are not permitted to drive let alone fly a plane solo, one must remember this story takes place around 1928 when times were different.
At the end of this movie the audience can enjoy meeting the real Pearl and learn more about her life. We are proud to award the Dove “family-Approved” Seal for all ages to this wonderful movie.
