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.

Not for those who want a simple action plot. But a lovely reflection on growing up and addressing some of the twists one may face. Strong acting and realistically shot without the glamorization typical of movies.
