Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

You'll enjoy this as much as your kids will

A thoroughly enjoyable and ambitious movie. Fantastic writing, hard-earned life lessons, a realistic main character. And a modern American story that has not been widely shared, until now. Watch this with your entire family and stick around for the discussion afterwards. A great opportunity to ask your kids questions so you can see your kids exercise their innate compassion and critical thinking skills.
