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.

Excellent movie about stereotypes and understanding other cultures

My kids (9 and 7) really enjoyed this movie. We liked seeing what real families in Egypt live like and how they spend their time. The transformation in the minds of the Americans is predictable but great. My younger child is very sensitive to death - so we were surprised when one of the main american characters dies unexpectedly after the trip. His wife brings his ashes back to Egypt with the help of the film-maker, so it is quite poignant. But I wish I could have given her a heads up before. Great movie.
