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.

Wasn't what I was expecting

At first I didn't want to watch it because of the controversy, but it was actually a very good movie and it pictures what it was like for a black girl in Germany at the time on WWII (aside from falling in love with a nazi).
