Should be required viewing for School kids.
30 May 2016 | by Nemesis42See all my reviews

Really this is quite powerful and if it were compulsory viewing for school children I'm sure in those schools where it was shown bullying would reduce. Not sure at which age would be ideal for the viewing.

Perhaps experts in psychology could figure this out. Probably look at the stats on what particular age group experiences the increase in bullying and go from there.

Parents need to watch it as well, though it is more difficult to make it compulsory for parents.

Well made, strong message, solid acting and an ethically important work. Well done to all those involved and I hope those that are the victims in real life get some betterment out of this.

Thanks for the learning experience.
