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.

Kids can be heroes too

This movie is fantastic. My preteen and 10 year old watched it with me. They enjoyed it very much. It’s a hard subject to learn about but it’s reality and they should know. The beauty of this movie is the fact that it’s based on a true story and the hero of the story is a little girl and the children who she led to safety. There is no gore. Nothing terrifyingly scary but it can be intense at times when they are fleeing or hiding. The movie is in French so subtitles have to be able to be read. It’s a fantastic story and everyone should watch it. The only negative I have is that the S*** twice and say BAST*** once at the beginning of the movie. From then on there is nothing questionable. Wonderful movie.

This should be required viewing for all kids 10 & older.

My 9-year-old & 11-year-old are not used to watching movies with subtitles but they were as enthralled from the start as I was. This is such a strong beautiful film.
