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.

One of my favorites. Totally NOT for kids under 11.

The partial nudity is the worst thing or else I'd probably rate it 9+. There is swearing though. (F---k, bastard, dyke and morw) But your twelve year olds hear so much sex talk in school that even if you did not talk to them about this kind of stuff they totally know about it. Amd your eight year olds probably hear this swearing in school. And bc of the internet there is no reason younger teens shouldn't watch it. BUT if your kid is nine or younger DO NOT LET THEM WATCH IT. Your 11 year olds should be able to handle it. Keep in mind your tweens know a lot more than you think they do.

Too much sex

PG 13 but not for 13 year olds

Would be better if not for scantily clad art scene (really weird) and the undressing for the “sex scene”.
