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.

Important Reminder

Very good telling of the struggle and violence women had to undergo to gain rights we now take for granted. Sad that there was only one good man in evidence.
age 15+

Strong sense of threat

Good film in many ways but a strong sense of threat throughout means would suit older teens. See the kids ratings on this - they themselves suggest for much older viewers! It's a shame there are virtually no positive male characters which makes the movie abit one-sided.
