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.

Proper Perspective

I liked the movie, felt it ended abruptly as though it's part of a series (perhaps I missed that), and mostly watched with an open mind, knowing that none of this ma be true of Obama's actual is a movie. If it does continue (Pt 2, 3, etc) I will continue to watch.
