When popular and beautiful cheerleader Stacey is stabbed to death, who could have done it? It could have been asocial Goth girl Monica, it could've been angst-ridden Jill - or maybe it was the plain girl nobody suspected. Full summary » | Full synopsis »

Did You Know?

After the murder, the Costas family moved to Hawaii. Bernadette Protti was released from prison in 1992, She was 23-years old at the time of her release.See more »
Factual errors: At Angela's and Jamie's confirmation ceremony, the parish priest is administering the sacrament. A parish priest would not normally administer this sacrament to young people who are receiving confirmation at the normal age: a bishop would administer confirmation. Parish priests only administer the sacrament of confirmation to converts, and only then when no bishop is available.See more »
Mr. Kwan:You've been subjected to a scene of enormous pathos here. The pathetic tableau of Angela surrounded by her family and she'd listened to her own damning words. But what are the tears and grief of the Lockwood family? Tears they will shed and grief they will feel for the rest of their lives.See more »

Classic Peer Abuse, 23 January 2003
Author: elizabethbennett from United States

This is a story that shows us how far people will go to avoid being bullied by their peers and belonging which occurs frequently in girls. We see Angela who is an insecure teenager that strives to be popular. Stacy is the classic bully, one who suffers from the "Princess Syndrome" and everything seems to go her way despite her behavior. This shows that bullying DOES get out of hand and that kids will go to any lengths to avoid becoming victims or targets of Peer Abuse. A really good film that exhibits Peer Abuse in girls during the teenage years.
