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.

Coming of Age

It mainly follows the story of these two 13 year olds as they go around part of Europe. They meet randomly but feel they are meant to be together. They go to Venice to fulfill a legend saying that those who kiss under a certain bridge will love each other forever. The man boy takes the girl to an inappropriate movie, None of it is shown, but she begins to cry and runs out of the theatre, though they're not even it, they're watching from a window in a friend's house. There are references to sex, and body parts, especially on a field trip to an art museum. But nothing really inappropriate is show. Anything bad will just fly over a lot of younger kids heads who don't know things yet. Kids who do now about this stuff, should be old enough to not mention any of it in school. I'm 11, and watched it with my brother and parents. He's 9, and had a few questions, but it was fine for him.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much consumerism

Not for pre-teens

The sexual content was iffy, I watched this, and there was a lot of kissing and references to bo*bs. Also some mild-moderate language. THIS IS FOR KIDS AGES 14+!!!!!
