This quiet, slow, coming-of-age drama's relatable story and solid but not stellar acting are both upstaged by the gorgeous landscapes of Yellowstone National Park. Druid Peak loses momentum and can start to feel aimless during some of the long, quiet stretches that mainly bask in the scenery. Sensitive animal lovers may be upset by the deaths of both cattle and wolves. The scenes are brief, and they're important to understanding the problems and successes of reintroducing wolves to Yellowstone.

It's a good choice for a low-key but thought-provoking movie night with young teens and up. All ages can appreciate the reminder that there's a much bigger world out there, and that growing up means finding your place in it by thinking about others and not just yourself.

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.
