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.

Positive messages and strong female characters

This movie is romantic, entertaining, and magical. It has such strong and female characters and very positive messages about not putting up with abuse, racism, discrimination, or any other crap in the name of religion or tradition. The main character is a single mother who owns her own business making exotic chocolates. She rescues another woman from her physically abusive husband, and stands up to the injustice in the village. This movie shows that you can still be a good and moral person even if you are not perfectly conventional, and that discrimination against others is wrong. There is no nudity, only brief sensual kissing, and it is a very good movie. PLEASE do not listen to the offended Karen who reviewed this movie lol.
