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.

True Story

At about 23:52 into the movie there is a scene of sex that should be skipped and ends at about 24:24. Other than that, nothing objectionable for a family.
