What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that The Revolutionary Optimists is a documentary that explores how children in India's slums are empowered to be agents of change. There isn't anything too edgy in the movie aside from one adult's story about having been sexually abused when he was 6, but the featured kids live in a state of squalor and poverty that's unimaginable to most moviegoers. Expect discussion of domestic abuse and child labor, as well as hunger and lack of education. But this isn't a tale of sadness; it's a story that will encourage kids to find their voice, take a stand, and lobby for their rights.
