Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (3 ):

This is an ambitious, big-hearted but disjointed attempt to help, but it never decides what it is about. French director Stephane de Freitas is filled with good intentions as he turns the spotlight on a number of pressing issues affecting populations around the world. He's great at finding inspiring people to represent those issues, and his efforts to promote their causes seem genuine.

But We Are One falters as he tries to do too much. Initially, he structures the movie as a countdown to a music video that will feature "Solidarite" by the musical group Lamomali, but that is shot halfway through, leaving us puzzled as to what the rest of the movie will be about. De Freitas brings all of his far-flung activists to Paris for meetings with fundraisers and facilitators, so you really can't knock him for making this effort to make the world a better place. All the more reason to wish that We Are One was a better, more watchable movie instead of the muddled, good-hearted mess that it is.

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.
