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.

All About Narcissism

This is a great movie. It's about more than just ambition, though. It's about narcissism, betrayal, deceit, and many other ambiguous behaviors. It depicts the early 1950s real world behind the scenes in Hollywood. Great performances and great script spur great dialogues with teens.

This movie deserved every award it was given. Stunning performances, especially from Bette Davis. The story is fabulous and keeps audiences entertained from beginning to end!
