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.

emotionally moving

Much deeper than previous move "Capote" -- and acting was great. This version of Capote's writing of the book In Cold Blood completed what was lacking in the previous movie. I'd watch it again.
