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.

Absolutely fantastic!

The hundred foot journey is one of my top 5 favorite movies of all time. I think this movie is fantastic because it has brings out the message that being with family and other people you love is what will make you happy. In addition to this it also has the message of not judging people based off of where they are from, but treating them based off of what kind of person they are.

schmaltz by numbers

Useful as a starting point for a discussion of how harmful and hurtful casual prejudice can be. There's nothing in the film that tweens and teens shouldn't see. but the film is by the numbers and lacks charm. a waste of the monumentally talented cast (Om Puri; Helen Mirren).
