For my full thoughts on this incredible, highly moving film, visit my blog called lifestoolbox on wordpress
I found the film to very touchingly portray the loss and pain, but too easily pin blame on schools and agencies. All of us need to be better, more active and engaged bystanders - fighting for the rights and value of all human beings.
This film is a must see, but it is also just a beginning. If people leave the film both moved and committed to talking with their children or students, vowing to make a difference - then it will have done a great service,
This is not an easy movie to watch - but it is something we must open our eyes to if we are to save children from the epidemic that is running wild in our communities.

Take your kids to see this movie. Then encourage others to see it. Everyone has seen bullying at some point in their lives. I was bullied through out elementary and middle school. What really shocks me about this movie, is how the schools don't have a plan for bullying.
As for is it appropriate for kids to see, I think a child said it best. In a news interview they showed a preview to kids and asked it they wanted to see it. They all said yes. When they asked if they thought it was too violent and if the language was too strong on child answered, No, we see all of this and more at school.

MPAA just changed the rating of this movie to PG-13!!! What a HUGE victory for all involved and all of us! I want to see it come to all the big theaters in Syracuse NY. I signed Katy's petition to get the rating changed, and have been eagerly awaiting the release of this movie. I think everyone should go watch this movie whether you have young kids, older kids or even no kids at all. Bullying is a nation-wide epidemic and the more people that take a stand against bullying of all kinds, the more the world will change for the better!!!

Bully was a movie that showed us what it is to be brave when no one is your friend. Its about time a documentary like this one airs so the world could see what our children have to endure and give us hope that now someone will listen. I cried throughout the movie, was angry at times and wish I knew the victims and their parents so that I could hug them and tell them that I would be their friend and that I will stand up to them. I hope others will see the movie and spread the word. Its time for a change and its time to stand together againsty bullying and society.

Take your kids , take the neighbor kids.
My 15 year old daughter made me go and I'm glad she did.
It is both wrenching and inspiring.
I can not for the life of me figure out why this is rated R and hunger games is PG.
