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.

Adventure with kindness

It’s a cultural experience colored with love, kindness, and health conscious messages, showing there are amazing ways that child team grow up and live. There’s a few traditional differences that may bother parents but kids do not notice them per se. This movie is the cleanest version of Brazil and their cultures that I’ve seen in a long time and it’s a gift to allow my kid to see a beautiful story of a child’s life in Brazil growing up in a commune and moving to the city to find her dad and also to see where her mom had her youth. The most positive of messages, shows this young girl Vesenza sticking to her nutritional values which is a very mature thing to do and it’s hard to get kids to adopt healthy values these days. My daughter who is 9, found this an empowering movie for young women and the message in the end is that family can be anyone who shows love and respect and makes time for you. Slow down parents and be there for your children. That’s all they want in order to call you mom or dad.

This title has:
