Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Icy Coast is a short documentary about the coldest coastal places in the world and their inhabitants. The lives of certain species are examined, including seals, penguins, and even tigers. Seals are shown fighting and there's a tiger shown chewing on a bloody deer carcass.

Is It Any Good?
This solid documentary examines coastal life in the coldest parts of the world, and it's suprisingly vibrant and lively. Many animals are supported by the cold, like penguins and seals, both of whom are filmed beautifully from birth through adulthood. It's a little dry, with gentle, slow narration from a male British voice. But if you're interested in exploring a part of the world that might be a little too cold to visit, there's lots to learn about here.
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.
