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.

Very good but mostly subtitles

As a family we really enjoyed this movie. It's visually breath-taking and the message is inspiring. The one thing to know is that it is highly subtitled, which may present difficulty with a pre-reader or emerging reader. We had to read the subtitles for our younger child, who declared 10 minutes into the movie that she didn't like it, but by the end she was cheering on Aisholpan.
