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.

Good Movie but wish I had known...

the sex scene was more involved than the review here said, there was more than one sex scene and not only with her husband, and there was a brief moment of female frontal nudity and a longish scene of them laying naked in the grass talking, and skinny dipping. Marie and her husband also attended a seance, and visiting with the dead kept coming up as a theme throughout the movie. We decided to watch it based on the review here, but I would not have watched this with my 11 and 12 yr olds if I had known of the additional content.

Should have been rated R

Do not watch with your kids. Didn’t even make it half way through the movie. Frontal nudity/sexuality.
