inspirational film.

This movie appeals to teens and adults alike. I think it is a inspirational film about a tragic accident and how a town overcomes. Love it and recommend it as a family movie for parents with teens.

Conventional in every way, We Are Marshall is stuffed full of meaningful music and montages, but it rarely overcomes generic clichés.

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.
