What I liked:

  • It's a conversation starter.  You can't help but want to talk about this film and it's contents, good or bad.
  • It shows you that there is a problem not only with bullying but also with adults not knowing how to handle it.
  • It's a documentary.  These are real kids, real parents, real school officials all dealing with this problem.  No actors.  No written story.

What I didn't like:
  • The film doesn't give much in ways of preventing or dealing with bullying except for a what not to do based on what the people in the film have done.  
  • It doesn't show a program that is working to end bullying.
  • There is a diverse group of kids that they follow but it could have been even more diverse.  I would have liked to see an issue with bullying in an affluent school district in a major city instead of all of these small towns in the south.
  • It would have been nice to get an update on how the kids are currently doing.

Grade: B
