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 movie is highly romanticized. The real Jeanne de la Motte-Valois was more of a sly, con artist than how she is portrayed in the movie. There's a topless scene and some violence. I think anyone who likes the time period will like all the colors and backgrounds used here.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
