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.

Excellent, faith-filled movie

This was an excellent movie with a neat twist. I hope they make more like this.

Recommend 14 and up. Too old for younger

Movie is true to life as 1950s Georgia would have convicted this poor kid & sentenced him to death. Affluenza back then. Shows love but a little implausible. Forgiveness is powerful. Watch it then let kids watch with you. No little ones at all. small towns have always had ruling families n judicial system n juries and witnesses have been corrupted by money. Watch it. I really enjoyed.
