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.

soo good!!

I may be biased since I love Taylor Swift so much but I truly loved the Long Pond Sessions so much! This is so great to watch if you want to know more about her song writing in her new album, Folklore. She really dives really deep into the meaning of each song on that album. I love it!!

Insightful, Amazing, Really Well Done Docu

This is a really well done documentary about Taylor Swift's eighth album. If you enjoyed folklore you should really watch this flick. It contains commentary on all songs (yes, even the lakes) and stripped down versions of all seventeen tracks. For parents: this is rated TV-14, meaning there is some swearing throughout the film (s**t, b***h, d**n, etc.), though the F-bombs in mad woman and betty are bleeped. There is also some mild innuendo in a handful of the songs, though nothing graphic and most of it should go over kids' heads. One song also references the horrors that occur on the battlefield and in the hospital. Hope this helps!
