Ignore the critics, and take the journey (with your kids, ideally)
27 December 2017 | by cliftonofunSee all my reviews

Critics may say that this film stays surface level or Disney-fies a critical human rights issue. They clearly have never watched it with their 5 and 8 year old kids. This movie started conversations about other places and religions and - most importantly - privilege. It let the stories stand alone, and that may not be such a bad thing.
