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.

Very good family movie

We really enjoyed this movie. Sometimes it was a surprise, as to the storyline, which is always a treat. Very nice surprise on the final race car. We all loved the movie!

Watch it

Valuable story. Not perfect and odd in places but worth watching in spite of this. The character is a war widow and her story represents so many out there. The bigger message is that none of us is better off going it alone. JUST WATCH IT!
