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.

This is one of the all time best films I've seen. Intriguing, emotional, beautifully photographed. This film pulls your emotions into the world of art and the world of war, in a way that is not easily forgotten. Particularly for artists, Dont Look Away takes a journey into the struggles and growth into the creative process. Just an amazing film.
