Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Mountain Lion: The Ghost Cat is a half-hour length documentary about the mountain lion, or puma. Other animals get some attention as well, including condors, who feed on mountain lions' spoils. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
This solid documentary is a standard "big cat attacks and devours prey" journey, but it's bolstered by an interesting locale and unusual animals like the guanaco. Mountain lions are scrappy and tough creatures at the top of their food chain, but notably, this docu also examines the chain reaction of their kill as it affects other, smaller animals. It's not necessarily riveting, but fans of cats both big and small will appreciate this peek into the mountains.
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.
