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.

One of the best movies but it not a horror or thriller

This movie is like an everyday life situation and it is very nice. Where I live, we are used to something called load shedding where we are without power for some time, yes, six months is an exaggeration but still a good movie. A sister connection, father passing away and finding ways to live in an isolated forest. A woman is raped and falls pregnant and still loves the child and the other sister is there to help with. It such a nice movie.

Very brutal rape scene happens in the movie where a young virgin is violently beaten and raped, and then carries and gives birth to a rape baby. Extremely TRIGGERING for survivors and young children!!! Beware..

Too much sex
