Pass the Light has an important message: By juxtaposing two different faith-based perspectives, it shows that hate isn't really a Christian virtue. The film itself is competent; the young actors have good chemistry, and you really get a sense for the dread that can befall the average high school student. One small moment of kindness can make a big difference for most kids. That said, the story is close to ridiculous, and the plot complications are easy to spot. The film has the feel of a well-done TV movie of the week, but it's no ground-breaker.

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.
