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.

Film pulls you in with all of its details.

A tense film...feels claustrophobic even though it also feels like in the background of the film the sky's the limit. Language is crafted in a way that isolates and reveals secrets when leaning in very closely to people playing word games. In general, communication is something that eludes each character much to their detriment. Each actor has their moments to shine in this film and we are held captive by their character's stumblings and their process. Pulls you in with ALL of its details.
