It's sometimes hard to tell who Mirror, Mirror is for, exactly. While the tone mostly conveys positivity and lightness to the "serious" topics of diversity and inclusivity, the comedy sometimes seems to come from the perspective of those unfamiliar with the "modern" sensibility the film builds into its very story. In other words, the humor can often feel misguided, presenting the "how does all this pronoun stuff work?" perspective.

Further, three of the four main characters are cisgen and straight, which reinforces the "bewilderment" perspective of those confused by the new "modern" ways of being. But for many, most if not all this might be forgivable given the film nevertheless still features trans people (even if not from a trans perspective) and an inclusive message of 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.
