Best Film About Bullying I've seen
31 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This could have been Lifetime Network slop, but it's very strong stuff that is sometimes difficult to watch and--as a former bully victim--very accurate. Since today's bullies have access to cell phones and the Internet, teen bullying has taken on a new, more destructive dimension. Hunter is especially impressive the meanest 'mean girl' you've seen on the screen since Sue Snell in the original Carrie, though we learn Hunter's character has her own problems (as bullies generally do). Despite the language (which is appropriate given the subject matter), this is a good film for families to watch together and discuss. My only problem with the film is the very end...no details--you can judge for yourself if it's a cop-out. Still, a great film I highly recommend, even if you're not a teen or parent of a teen.
