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.

Everyone is beautiful in their own way

I absolutely loved the relationship of Lionel & Diane in this movie. It's a really different but beautiful film. It shows love & compassion for people who might be different from others, but are equally beautiful in other ways, maybe even more sensitive and caring because of their differences. It's a good film for teaching sensitivity to kids. It shows that everyone needs and deserves love. :)
