Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

In this funny, sad, and revealing documentary, director Mandelup has found a gentle path; she treats her subjects with kindness and dignity to spare, so that they seem to forget a camera is watching. Jawline, a winner at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, is a surprising film -- a movie that can be labeled "a cautionary tale." As the director follows the eager, often naive kids who're looking for an easy way to fame and fortune, the blissful young girls who are overcome by adoration, and even those who would take advantage of their client's celebrity, no judgments are made. The film is simple, compelling, and heartfelt, a serious look at the relatively new and impactful phenomenon of social media stardom.

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.
