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.

Leaving a mark on emptiness

Its a movie that stirs up different emotion and it gives the word "change" a good and bad light. Change is for those people who are not afraid to risk and someone who is not afraid of future. Sometimes there are things we need to change in our life and that change will only be successful if we do it for ourselves and not for others. We live, we love everyday with a new chapter and in every chapter we meet thousands of people and we must live each day like its the last so to make these people remember us, leave a mark with every good change we do in our life. This movie just made me realize that life itself is a box of surprise...a surprise where we never know what happens next.

Interesting concept

I saw this movie with my 11 year old daughter and we both enjoyed it very much. At many points she was actually laughing out loud. Several conversations were had about what it means to have a sense of self that transcends how you may look or appear to others. Also, we spent some time talking about how important it was for A to move on so that the person s/he was inhabiting (for lack of a better expression) could go forward with life and exert free will. Love, regardless of appearance or gender, was another topic. Ditching school had zero negative consequences- we talked about how unrealistic that was. She cheered when Rhiannon came to terms with her bad relationship with her boyfriend and said that she approved when Rhiannon reached out to try to connect with her father. Overall, the film was enjoyable and sparked some good conversations with my pre-teen..
