In a climate where "immigrant" has become a disparaging designation in some circles, John Hoffman and Nanfu Wang offer an alternative look at a group of inspiring folks who want to become citizens. Out of Many, One doesn't try to tell the whole story. It is simply a concise, clear-eyed portrait of a few. Introducing a number of lucky participants in the New York Historical Society's program "The Citizenship Project," the movie is just long enough to hold the attention of kids who will certainly benefit from hearing their stories.

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.
