There's nothing frosty about this heartwarming film narrative about ice diver Johanna Nordblad. "When I was little," recalls Nordblad in Hold Your Breath: The Ice Dive, "we had a five-meter-deep swimming pool in our town. I used to go to the bottom of that pool and watch the people swimming above me." Elina Manninen shares that her older sister believes girls can do anything that guys could do, such as kayaking or motorbiking. Leading up to an unconventional career path as an adult, Nordblad's plunge into uncharted waters in Hold Your Breath: The Ice Dive will likely immerse kids and teens in a meaningful educational experience about the world of achievement and what it takes to get there.

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.
