A clean movie that hits all the important points of online predators. Something every adult that’s involved with children should get across to kids and young adults

FINDING FAITH is not a particularly great movie in the traditional sense, but it has a message that aims to educate families about the real risks of online predators. And it does so in a way that's less fear-based and hyperbolic than the typical Hollywood dramatization might. It's an openly faith-based film, but many of the lessons are useful even if your family prefers the secular community. It demonstrates that online predators can pose as cute 16-year-old boys, that teenage girls are the most vulnerable target, and that sex trafficking is not a terrible tragedy that only happens in distant, far-flung countries but a problem right here. Moreover, here we have a teen girl who is not from an at-risk family but rather from an engaged, church-going family and who has good grades, excellent friends, and engaging extracurricular activities -- all things we might assume are buffers from vulnerability but are not enough without a solid understanding of the online landscape today.

It's probably not a first choice for a Friday night family movie, but for kids of a certain age, and parents looking to engage about online safety, it can be a more moderate way to start the conversation, as it's drawn from a real-life story and not a Hollywood script.

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.
