In an article online entitled “What to watch with your kids: ‘Find Me in Paris,’ ‘Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan’ and more”  the Washington Post covered the Nancy Oeswein written,  Harley Wallen directed Michigan-made movie, “Bennett’s Song.”

Based on an original review by Barbara Shulgasser-Parker for Common Sense Media, what appears is:

Bennett’s Song (TV-PG)


Age 10+

Well-intentioned tale about adoption has mild language.

Bennett’s Song” is a family movie that highlights the benefits of adoption. A widower and divorcée who’ve each adopted seven children from all over the world fall in love and blend their families, raising issues about racism, loyalty, child-rearing, education, competition and tolerance. Language includes “b—-,” “hell,” “damn” and “a–.” In response to unspecified racial slurs, protective older kids stand up for their younger siblings. A teacher complains that a teenager has made a science joke about snow men with “snow balls” and snow women with “snow-varies.” (108 minutes)

Available via Amazon streaming.

After a surge in online readership in 2016, the paper was profitable for the first time since Bezos made the purchase in 2013.
