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.

Under the same Moon is Cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Under the same Moon is a Cool but sad movie. But whats a coincidence is that The Main Character's name (The Boy) his name is Carlos (but they call him Carlitos). My First Name is Also Carlos and my whole name is Carlos Ivan Perez and I'm 14 years old. Well I think this movie is entertaining. (But it can be disturbing for kids so I Recommend it for People 14 or older). I Give this movie 3 out of 5 stars and I RATE Under the same Moon AGE: 14+. MPAA RATING: PG-13. Under the same Moon is an entertaining movieI Hope you like Under the same Moon. If you don't like Under the same Moon then it's a shame because I Think It's Cool!
