Is It Any Good?

The movie deftly combines a love of dance, art, and music with relatable preschooler issues: jealousy, misunderstandings, fears, and the frustrations of increasing responsibility. In this case, Angelina takes on caring for little sister Polly and must deal with a slew of frustrations that come with being an older sister and a caretaker. She battles her own frustrations with friends and deals with jealousy and fear when she thinks her beloved Miss Lilly is getting married and moving away. In each scenario, kids learn it's better to tell parents when they need help and that mistakes are OK if you work to set things right. Though Angelina's frustrations aren't always likable (little siblings and clumsy cousins often are portrayed as nuisances), there are admirable resolutions combined with an abiding love of dance and art.

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.
