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.

Kids 6 and older embraced it in screenings

Love it. While the film has a few mature themes (Dad drinks, some name calling), these things serve a purpose and a lesson in the film. The movie won awards from the Parents Television Council, Heartland Film Fest, Austin Film Festival, Int'l Family Film Festival, and I believe one other as well... I'm the film's producer so I should remember...

Great Family Film

This was a great family movie that was interesting and kept you interested from beginning to end. This movie was surprisingly good compared to my expectations. Great for adults and kids.
