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.

What a documentary should be

This documentary did what a good documentary should--make you question what is "right" ... make you feel a range of emotions ... and get you thinking, debating, and discussing with fellow movie-goers the content of the film. The plot twists just were so stunning, I could hear others in the theater gasping right along with me. What a movie--one I was thinking about and discussing long after I left the theater.
