Quotes

Taylor Hillridge: [Kris has driven Taylor to the hospital wanting her to go the support group for people who've been victims of bullying] I can't believe you're making me do this.
Kris Hillridge: This isn't a punishment, Taylor. It's a support group. A place you can go to talk about what you've been through.
Taylor Hillridge: I don't wanna talk about it.
Kris Hillridge: Then don't talk about it! Just go and listen! We can't pretend this didn't happen, it happened, and you need help! And there is nothing wrong with asking for help!

People need to think about what this film is really about.
17 September 2013 | by (Swindon, England) – See all my reviews

Firstly, I'm gonna say that I think some people have the wrong idea about this film and the message it's getting across. This film being unrealistic, badly acted or poorly scripted frankly has nothing to do with it in my opinion.

Who should say what is unrealistic where these types of scenario's are concerned. As far as I'm aware, anybody can be affected by bullying of any kind anywhere in the world. Bullying doesn't just happen to "foreigners", "ugly" or "fat" people as another reviewer stated. I really don't think it matters that the victim in this film is a pretty, blonde 17 year old girl who would apparently be popular in the "real world".

The point of this film is to get the message across about how cyber bullying in particular can affect anybody and I think this film does this really well. I also don't think the film needed to end with a victim of the bullying successfully committing suicide to get the seriousness of this subject over to people. What this story did for me was show that victims of bullies do go through a really tough time but you can come through the other side with your head held high because you didn't let bullies get to you in the end.

Yes, the acting isn't always the best and the script could arguably have been better but look at the bigger picture here people. Cyber bullying and bullying of any kind is a serious problem and people (often teenagers, etc) do end their lives because of it. But I feel this movie has brought awareness to this issue in a positive way and will (and probably has) taught many people about the seriousness of this topic.

In my opinion this is a great film that puts over information in an important topical subject in just the right way.
