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.

Enjoyable adventure and a good introduction to subtitles

Free from sex or violence, and with mild peril and moments of tension, this is a great film to introduce braver kids to subtitled movies. The atmosphere, candid style and realism combined with ridiculous comedic elements (the bear paw prints left by a government employee, the power lines that go round in circles to fence in trolls) make for an immersive and enjoyable watch.

I'm a bad troll!

Not to be confused with famly friendly troll films, as this is an handheld Norwegian horror comedy. After a class viewing there can be talk about Norwegian folklore. Good for an Halloween fest with outlandish horror comedies. In consumerism of course Norwegain Winter vacations.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much consumerism
