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.

Layered story about patriarchy takes some twists and turns

All hail Haley Bennett! She takes the story of a stifled and increasingly desperate woman and condenses it into a tack, a jack, a marble, a screwdriver. The layered ways in which patriarchy enmeshes women into tight webs. Then the whole left turn with the whole rapist storyline...whoa. An emotional story that dares to delve in places that we choose to actively ignore. Kudos to the hug me I'm lonely guy!
