Great short movie
20 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

I was fortunate to watch this movie on Virgin America and found it to be a great movie concerning the topic of bullying. With two soon to be 9 year old twin boys, this show is very close to my heart. This certainly would be a good short to show to any classroom of 7-12 year olds. Bullying has to stop in this country. What starts has having a little "fun" is now turning into pre-teen and teen suicides.

As a 56 year old father with 3 young kids, I rate this movie a 10 for it's content and execution. One of my kids goes to the Orange County School of the Arts in Santa Ana, CA and I hope that more movie producers can come up with more story lines on topics for kids that are all so fragile. OCSA is one of those school with the most talented and fragile and they can be themselves.
