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.

Great movie!

This is an amazing adventure story that is pretty easy to understand. There is a bit of violence as one character hits another character in the back of the head with a rifle. And the main character, Winnie is forced onto a horse by another character. There are two kissing scenes that are not inappropriate and two characters flirt with each other. Overall, this is a great movie and i totally recommend it to young audiences.

Thought provoking. All the teen-age girl reviewers cried when they watched this film. Guess what? I cried too! And I'm an old dude and a "mean" Dad.
