Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2 ):

This is a quiet drama that's both moving and funny about an emotional journey a father and daughter take together. Don't Make Me Go has some gaps in storytelling, and in understanding or believing the characters' motivations, but Cho as dad Max and Isaac as daughter Wally have some real chemistry together, and both turn in fine performances.

Its many twists and turns, flaws, and strengths will give families with mature teens who can handle the strong content a lot to talk about. It's a bittersweet affirmation of unending love between parent and child. Keep a tissue handy along the way.

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.
