Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Terrific performances by Sarah Gadon and Bel Powley as Lilibet and P2 give this film charm enough to see its way through a thin plot and a few softly landed attempts at poignancy. Cinematography, costumes, sets, and direction are all first-rate and bring a vibrant spirit to the not-so-distant past when wars actually celebrated an ending. Setting the story amid some iffy activities (underage drinking and drunkenness, visits to a brothel and a gambling den) may make it too mature for tweens and middle-grade kids, and that's a shame. It's a fairy tale, after all.

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.
