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.

Why are people shocked that this is inappropriate for children?

I can't believe there are parents on here freaking out about how it's not appropriate for kids. Why would you let your child watch a PG-13 movie? There is absolutely no indication that children under 13 should watch this film. If your child saw it and had nightmares, that's YOUR responsibility. Anyway, this was a beautiful film! I felt like it was pretty accurate. The only thing that annoyed me was the love triangle.
