‘Bully’ Shows the Unfortunate Cruelty of Adolescence

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

When I heard on NPR that the film, ‘Bully’ was going to be released in New York and Los Angles without a rating this weekend due to the language in it (which I will address in another post) I got to the theater as soon as I could. ‘Bully’ directed by Lee Hirsch, produced by Lee Hirsch and Cynthia Lowen follows several teenagers and their families who have suffered due to bullying.

I initially wanted to write yet another review of the film but my emotional response that was shared by everyone in the audience seems more salient. Why?
