    Seriously? thats really ignorant! these kids here worse than the F—- word @ home & in movies they let their kids watch! i can promise if i ever get that movie my kid WILL watch it whether its rated R or not! kids need 2 c the importance & reality of how bullying is ruining childrens/teenagers lives. & really who cares if its legitimate or if they just tryin 2 make $ off it…as long as ours kids learn b4 it too late that treatin other people like trash cuz how they dress or where they live or how much $ they got ect…is wrong! & 2 b quite honest i think the majority of the prob is the parents fault…u have 2 teach ur kids to respect every1 no matter what & if the parents cant teach them maybe this movie will! this movie should be nationwide in every single school & should be mandatory 2 watch!

    I talked to my 12 yr-old (6th grade) grandson lastnight for the 1st time in a few weeks and he told me he had gotten in school suspension for slapping the kid that has been harrassing him all year.  The other kid got lunch suspension. This young man who is a very kind person is angry, and I I’m afraid for him.  He gets shoved into his locker, tripped and kicked, tripped and his long braid stood on,  called “China lady”,stupid, gay, at least one of those things on almost a daily basis.  His flute got destroyed, and he dropped out of band which he really wanted to take but had enough! 
    I asked him if he could go talk to someone, perhaps the principle,  during lunch break, he said yes, but then would miss out on the little time he has to have a good time with his firends.  2 of them are 7th graders & the other 2 are on a different “team” ie; not in his classes.  He is not a stupid person, but does struggle with school because of slight dyslexia and a poor working memory.  He is half Native American, with beautiful light brown skin, with hair that is half way down his back.  Some how he manages to retain his awesome sense of humor, at least at times.
    I have promoted this movie and signed 2 petitions, and will continue to promote this movie and speak out about this horrendous problem.

    Many options available for reaching audiences? We don’t need this film to be shown at one local playhouse this film needs to be shown in every movie theatre across the country so that kids can go see it with their peers and not just with their parents. You are right the model of distribution is to reach the largest audience possible because every day our kids and committing suicide because they can’t take the pain inflicted on them by their peers who judge them. Won’t make them as much money you say, this documentary is not about making the Weinstein Company rich it is about saving lives and sending a message ” We are fed up with society and how people and parents think this is not an issue.” Beautiful souls are crying out for help….
