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.

STRONG drug use.

I think that if someone genuinely wants to see this film, 9 times out of 10, they will understand the problems with drug use. This is a brilliant film, and very important in film history, so its worth watching. I wouldn’t give an exact age for how old to watch the film, since obviously some kids are different from others, but I feel like 14 is a good average.
