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.

Felt a little sick

This film was highly acclaimed and recommended. But I wish it hadn't been. The acting is superb (Frank Sinatra is great!) but the content left me feeling unattached to any character in the film. There is adultery, murder and drunkenness thought the story and no real resolve at the end. I wish I had not watched this but had watched "It happened one night" instead.
