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.

This is an incredible movie--check out the IMDB (sp.?) for more intelligent reviews, with more than an ounce of thought or depth, than Common Sense gave it. While it is not my favorite movie of all time, it does contain the 2 best scenes of all time. Watch it and see if you don't agree. Natalie Portman is stunning; Timothy Hutton follows her lead and keeps up. This movie sadly illustrates the unfulfilled promise that is Natalie Portman's career--but enjoy it nonetheless. Other movies I like are Pan's Labyrinth, Once, Terms of Endearment, all the LOTR, The Orphanage, Fried Green Tomatoes, The Princess Bride, Secret of Roan Inish, The Breakfast Club, Moulin Rouge, The Rookie, The Age of Innocence, Usual Suspects, The Departed, Mystic Pizza, Mystic River, etc.

This title has:

Too much swearing
Great messages
Great role models
