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.

Terrible representation of Roma/ traveler culture and people

I personally like this movie even more than most fantasy / princess remakes or re-imaginings and the cast is delightful. However, and I'm not prude when it comes to language, the language and suggestive behaviors seem skirting the line and excessive even for PG-13... Maybe closer to a TV-14 or Euro 14/15 rating. Otherwise I would let 9-11 year olds watch it! Additionally the depiction of Roma/ travelers as thieves / g**sys and that the princess supposedly gets gy**ed by them really hasn't aged well and shouldn't be so easily accepted. It is certainly not in the name of good representation to all cultures or the new value of 'Diversity' that CSM currently highlights.

I've always loved the tale of Cinderella

I love this movie,one of the best retelling story of Cinderella yet! I've always loved the story of Cinderella,the Disney versions and lots of other ones as well. But this one is my favorite! In this version (Danielle, Cinderella) Is very brave and stands up for what she believes in. I just love it!
