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.

His best. It’s not that terrible content wise, so long as your kid understands sex. It’s mostly just a slow-burning thinkers movie, so it’s not for the impatient. It has some romance scenes between two women, nudity shown. However these scenes are vital to the plot and extremely romantic, not a bad thing at all. There’s a bit of violence but it’s pretty brief. Overall, it’s a must-watch for anyone who loves film. I highly recommend it.
