Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

This sincere look at proud LGBTQ folks in the Deep South is engaging and on point, but there's a randomness to the structure that makes it less skillful and compelling than it might have been. With a nod to the escalation of negative behavior toward multiple minorities in the wake of the 2016 election, Malcolm Ingram and company deliver a clear-eyed response to the sometimes-regressive political climate in Southern Mississippi. Ingram does a great job of finding the heart of the people and the towns he's opted to portray; it's the integration of historical footage and tangential events (which are significant and rightly should have a place in Southern Pride) that's less than graceful.

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.
