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.

A Timeless Classic

This is based on a true story and is a timeless classic. I personally think it should be watched with a parent to answer questions and explain context of things. Provides unique life perspectives and the ability to overcome any obstacle life places before you.

A Great Family Movie

This is one my favorite movies of all time! It has a little bit of romance(nothing inappropriate) and it’s a great family movie! It’s got great role models and an exciting storyline and is based on a true story. All in all a great film, especially for a family movie night!
