CommentsThe material contains complex and mature themes presented within an educational historic drama context that follow true events. Themes explore a women liberation group seeking gender equality and standing against women’s oppression, the pressures that exists in the world of beauty pageants, Miss World competition preparations and selections, disruption of the pageant by a group of feminist, a believe that one doesn’t need to be white to have a place in the world, injustices and the fight to restore women’s dignity, anti-apartheid sentiments, starting over after divorce, family life and teamwork. The intention of the director is to create an awareness about gender inequalities in the world of beauty pageants and the pressure that comes with the competition. Children under the age of 10 years are not cognitively mature to comprehend the themes that are presented in this film. They carry a mild to moderate sense of threat and menace. Children under the age of 10 years might misinterpret the intention of the director and the context of the film. This might be emotionally and morally harmful to them. Parental guidance is advised for children aged 10 to 12 years, to explain context and offer reassurance. Moreover, in the current of social media and cyber bullying where children have to conform to certain stereotypes that might harm the (especially with the pressure of what beauty present), this film will guide children 10-12PG and upwards to have positive self-image and self-acceptance as it stands against one dimensional societal definition of beauty.
