Not a family film but a cinematic experience to behold.
26 May 2002 | by (Pembrokeshire, Wales) – See all my reviews

While I may have to agree that this is not a family film I have to point out that as a teenager myself I founnd this film moving, funny and extremely poignant. While I haven't been bullied myself you get the feeling of being drawn into the film and you share with the lead roles helplessness. This is one of the few modern films that reely on the script to keep you instead of fancy plot lines and computer sequences. 10/10.
