Is It Any Good?

So many great directors, so little time for each. It's almost better, though, because if someone gets a little outlandish or even too heavy you only have to sit through the short for five minutes before you're hit with something that'll probably grab you. Mature teens will gravitate toward the simple, sweet multicultural romance in "Quais de Seine" (Gurinder Chadha). Moms everywhere will feel for the Spanish nanny in "Loin du 16e" (Walter Salles) who leaves her young child for long days to nanny for another. Wes Craven surprises in "Pere-Lachaise" by setting his short in a graveyard without any gore whatsoever (the ghost of Oscar Wilde is dashing, not dashing out anyone's brains with a sledgehammer).

Last and best, Alexander Payne channels the spirit of all American tourists through the eyes of a single, overweight postal worker. And best of all for the oft maligned American in Paris, he makes the French sit through her horrendous accent AND feel for her at the same time. Touche.

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.
