The ending is positive, but the middle is what is truly horrifying. Certain moments felt like almost too much to watch and almost silly, despite knowing that this is exactly what is happening on the internet every day. That's what makes a movie like this so terrifying yet so honest. I absolutely loved this movie and would certainly recommend this. (Plus, they use "Breathe Me" by Sia in a crucial scene!)
This movie was definitely important. It was hard to watch, but that was because it was so accurate. If you've never been bullied, you'll probably think it's silly and overdramatic, but it's not. As the bully admits at the end, when you do it online, you don't even realize you're doing it. It doesn't seem real. It's just a computer screen. You can't see the person you're hurting. You can't see the pain in their eyes or the hurt on their face. And that's why cyberbullying has become so prevalent. Cowards do it. People who would never have the guts to say something to someone's face have no problem saying something to an inexpressive computer screen. And they have no idea the damage they cause. And the victims have no recourse. You can't go to the police with internal bruising. As it stated at the end of the movie, just over half the states now have laws that help with cyberbulling. But they only help, they don't actually punish the bullies or efectively stop it. And they presently only deal with minors. Adults can be bullied too and there are apparently no laws at all dealing with that yet.
I'd recommend this movie be shown in schools, but I imagine a lot of kids would laugh at it if it were shown in a group setting. Parents should show it to their kids individually, maybe. I think a lot of adults would benifit from watching it as well.
I expected this movie to be of mediocre quality, but I was pleasantly surprised at how well-done it was. Worthy purchase!
What's really amazing to me is that there was also the issue of forgiveness with one character and Taylor (Emily Osment), and the movie is great for that reason. It shows the absolute cruelty of what's going on out there, and also Taylor's willingness to forgive the person who hurt her the most (not giving that one away). Everyone should see this movie, regardless of age, because the message is strong and very effective. Don't wait as long as I did. Cyberbully isn't long, but it's worth every moment you spend watching it.
