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.

Community Reviews

age 18+

Crude and depressing

Tells the tale of a man battling drink, drugs and suicide (sitting in bath with razor blade, ready to swallow handfull of pills) he deals with the death of his wife. It is thought provoking but has very crude language and violent themes EG man goes to therapist who recommends he rapes both men and women in order to save his marriage. Lots of negative and violent sexually abusive references about women.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
