Bully

It's time to take a stand


Bully
The first feature documentary film to show how we've all been affected by bullying, whether we've been victims, perpetrators or stood silent witness. The world we inhabit as adults begins on the playground. We start on the first day of school. For the more than 13 million kids who'll be bullied this year in the United States, it's a day filled with more anxiety and foreboding than excitement. As the sun rises and school buses across the country overflow with backpacks, brass instruments and the sounds of raging hormones, this is a ride into the unknown. For a lot of kids, the only thing that's certain is that this year, like every other, bullying will be a big part of whatever meets them at their school's front doors.

What the Critics say

Cape Times
David Rooney quote iconMakes a potent social-outreach tool that deserves to be seen as widely as possible.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconYes, the pic is important for many to see as it will (or at least should) open lines of communication about the troubling issue. But it ends up being akin to a medical film that shows the effects of an infection, but offers nothing in terms of explaining why it occurs or ways to treat it.
