From Sundance Award-winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, comes a beautifully cinematic, character-driven documentary following five kids and families over the course of a school year. Offering insight into different facets of America’s bullying crisis, the stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter, who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. With an intimate and often shocking glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias and principals' offices, this is a powerful and inspiring film that every educator, parent and teenager should see.

Although I found this documentary interesting, I felt several parts dragged on. It's sad seeing stories of these kids being bullied and am glad that the makers are trying to reveal to the world what could be happening to kids throughout the U.S. school system. I found myself yelling at the TV a couple times at the idiots that run the schools and school bus driver. However, I was disappointed that there wasn't much on the latest threat - cyber bullying. Boy, am I glad I didn't have to grow up in an age where kids can use Facebook as a weapon. Perhaps I can't relate because I wasn't bullied to such an extend or knew anyone that was bullied to the level that the kids are in the movie during my childhood.
Nevertheless, it's an interesting documentary so give it a rent.
Please don't take this as an "holier than thou" review, as I was also picked on as a child and I also picked on others as a child. BUT, picking on and "bullying" are two different animals.
I actually wanted to reach out and slap that principle that said "kids will be kids". No, kids will not be kids as long as they are allowed to act like animals.
If you are not touched by this movie, then you are either a zombie or a bully yourself. With all the school shootings of late, why are we not waking up to how much bullying is the cause of all this and not whether or not guns should be illegal.
