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.

Takes its time to take you on the journey

This film is not what I expected, so that's good. It takes its tiiiiiiiime getting to the journey part which is where I thought we would start right off. It kind of La La Land's you a bit at the end, but Patel's performance is very strong as is Keoghan's and you want to know what is going to happen next. The choices are many and the ambiguity is fun (at least I think it is). It does not feel as deterministic as you think it will be. This film feels like it took a long time to film and that it cost a lot of money, but the cost is not as much as I thought and the quality is off the charts. Make more like this please.
