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.

Ok for open-minded folks

I got this movie from the library and popped it in with my 8 and 6 year old since the movie is "unrated" and it is about metaphysics. We THOROUGHLY enjoyed it and was able to discuss the power of thought and intention with them. I think this movie is ok for open-minded kids who have already been exposed to things like meditation, etc. as my kids are. However, I was irritated that there is a brief nude/sex flashback during the film. We stopped the movie there because I was unsure of what would happen thereafter.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 8+

Kids can see this!

This movie is okay for kids who are smart, open minded and patient. It's quite an eye-opening movie if you give it a chance.
