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.

Helpful For Skeptics and Believers Alike

This movie really goes into depth about Atheism and Christianity. It's very informative and I've learned many facts about the crucifixion of Jesus. For anyone who has questions about Christianity or is skeptical about Jesus, this is the movie. I enjoyed it and I hope you will too!
