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.

I am a fifty-two-year old woman and to me this movie was just okay. Some movies just don't seem to have any reason for being made and in my opinionnthis one was one of them. What exactly was the point? I thought the film treated a serious subject in a fairly shallow and cliched way. But the acting was solid and the story was a lot better than most movies I've seen lately which isn't saying much. That said, my 30-year-old son really liked it.
