Beautiful, artistic, passionate
As a former AP Art History instructor I had to watch this and it did not disappoint. Shot after shot was not only beautiful but also meaningful, with connections to the history and cultures of Africa. Plus there is a lot about just parenthood in general.
I watched it with my 8 year old and she enjoyed seeing the connections to The Lion King. She was also amazed and interested in the costumes and settings. It was not quite active enough for her, but she drifted in and out of the room and thought that Blue Ivy had a lovely singing voice.
In the entire 1.5 hour film there are maybe five blink-and-you'll-miss-it sexually suggestive dance moves. And that is a generous estimate, for those who see any arched back and hip sway as sexual. The segment about 15 minutes in where young Simba gets lost is a tiny bit scary, but certainly less so than in the live action Lion King, which was only rated as for kids 8+.
The 13+ recommendation is just baffling to me.
