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.

This isn’t a comedy

I watched this cuz I thought it was going to be funny but it really isn’t, very emotionally heavy imo. It’s a pretty good movie though. The main theme is mother/daughter relationships.
