Storyline

Frustrated by feeling left out, Haley thinks nothing of it when she criticizes the seniors by posting a note about them on a social network site. But when she comes to one of the senior's aid one afternoon, they strike up an unexpected friendship and Haley soon becomes wrapped up in being part of their crowd, straining her relationship with her parents Melissa and Ray when she begins to come home late, talk back and disobey their rules. Ultimately, the girls discover Haley's online comments about them. Betrayed, they decide to make her pay by ambushing her and beating her up on camera with plans to post the video online to gain some Internet fame. Devastated by their daughter's brutal beating and footage of it surfacing online, Melissa and Ray put their hope into the authorities for justice in punishing Haley's former friends to help their daughter get her life back on track in this story about peer pressure, media scrutiny and forgiveness.

Moving story results in a good movie!
3 October 2013 | by roth81See all my reviews

The film was inspired by a 2008 beating in Florida.

The movie looks at the life of 16 year old Haley Macklin (Jodelle Ferland) who wants to get in to the cool girl group but things go horribly wrong in her effort to fit in with them. She posts a negative message on a social networking site about the cool girls and the rush is on for payback on her comments. They beat her up with the goal of putting that whipping online but her parents and the law get involved.

Very good movie considering it was made for TV.

The performances in this movie were great. Jodelle Ferland doing a good job as Haley. James Tupper is not a great actor but in this movie he is believable as a dad. Anne Heche is outstanding as The mother. (Should be awarded for this role!)

This movie was really well done. It may be the best Lifetime movie ever made.
