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 a movie! It's a soap opera! It's a hoot!

The story of betrayal among family is not new. This film tells the tale in high soap opera style. It's high camp as well. While kids will go for the CGI arrows and hooks, adults will get quite a few laughs because, just when one thinks it can't get any hammier, it lays it on even thicker. A beautiful film just the same. Not to everyone's taste, obviously, since it came and went with striking swiftness.
