An average guy of an Estonian high-school decides to defend his bullied classmate. This starts war between him and the informal leader of the class. As teenagers' honour is a touchy thing, everything ends in bloodshed.
In New York City's Harlem circa 1987, an overweight, abused, illiterate teen who is pregnant with her second child is invited to enroll in an alternative school in hopes that her life can head in a new direction.
Everyday, thousands of gay and lesbian students are verbally and physically harassed in schools. Jamie Nabozny was tormented by classmates for years. He eventually fought back - not with his fists, but in a courtroom.
I liked it very much, it is a film were a young fellow is been bullied by his school mates. It is difficult to watch as it has very cruel moments but it seems that this director has changed the horizons in Spanish cinema as it is not another predictable film were what you expect happens, all the contrary. A good film that makes you think. I recommended to all. I believe that this film is a new beginning of what I would like to think the end of an injustice situation for so many young people. This problem affects us all directly or indirectly and films like this have a message so we can all think and do something about it.
