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.

Any age can enjoy

A beautiful, witty romance with no sex or violence. The hero and heroine are both admirable, and the love story is enjoyable, as it focuses on Elizabeth and Darcy having a verbal sparring match most of the time. If your kids like romance, then this is a great family film.

A Must-See

This is one of my all-time favorite movies. It's a beautiful, old-fashioned romance and has beautiful imagery of nature and gentle piano incorporated throughout. This is a beautifully atmospheric, light hearted movie. It might be harder for children to enjoy or appreciate and so I think its better suited for the tween/teen age group.
