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.

It's not that bad.

I think that every one in the world should view this move at some point in your life. It's realistic about how people are tortured. Plus the acting s amazing and this is overall a great movie. Everyone should see it!

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
