Bully! The Fight for your life


" The fight over Bully continues, with the National Association of Theatre Owners now making its own threats. News came out last week that the MPAA upheld its R-rating for The Weinstein Company’s Tribeca 2011 doc about school bullying and since then the Weinstein Co has considered releasing the doc unrated and even to boycott the MPAA altogether, a move could have implications for its future releases. If TWC indeed goes ahead with releasing the film unrated, NATO said today in a letter to Weinstein boss Harvey Weinstein that it will urge members to consider the Lee Hirsch-directed film an NC-17 movie." -Philip DeFranco [PhillyD.tv]

Bullying is a serious matter and this film was made so that Middle & High Schoolers could see how it effects the Bullied and how it hurts everyone else.

I believe that this is an important documentary that attacks the issue head on in hopes to educated kids and people alike on the serious issue of Bullying.
