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.

Film takes a few surprising twists, difficult to pin down the genre

A delicate feminine film that offers what happens with human desire in the face of structural inequity that pits fiscal desperation against nature and harsh immigration realities. The story we wish to hear from those who have gone to try and not succumb to a systemically unjust world. How do women heal when large groups of men disappear? How do we maintain our humanity when we are valued monetarily to the exclusion of all else? Powerful.
