Like so many other documentaries, this might have a lot of important things to say, but it is not a great film. Beyond the usual complaints, I thought the focus on children was there to make the case less complicated and more emotional. I think similar arguments could be made for adults, but you would have keep in mind more ideas of agency. The part where the film flat out says that any discussions over just what the role of the government is on these issues is a distraction is why this takes the easy way out.
