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.

Where is Michelle Williams' interview?

I thought it was quite strange that Heath's partner wasn't interviewed for the documentary. It seemed vastly edited, almost as if the makers were trying to put Heath's best self forward only. There were sides to him, much darker sides, that went deliberately unaddressed throughout the entire documentary. He died of a drug overdose, a fact that was left unexplored, making the documentary highly obscured and disappointing.
