Is It Any Good?

The great intentions of Girl Connected director Koen Suidgeest are unimpeachable and the movie's important message far outweighs its narrative flaws. A more elegantly edited movie might make actual connections, as per the title, among the five girls showcased. But the importance of the work being done by the five intrepid and socially-conscious girls shown here can't be overemphasized. The movie is a great tool for inspiring others to do the same, and may be something parents will want to watch with their kids and that teachers will want to share with their students.

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.
