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.

Not to be missed!

More creepy (and upsetting to see Ingrid Bergman in distress) than actually scary. One note: This excellent film was directed by the great George Cukor, not the great Alfred Hitchcock
