The message was loud and clear!
11 April 2015 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

It was an interesting take on the subject of Bullying.

After Jessica Burns' attempted suicide, A film crew doing a documentary on her school, begins to focus on what made her do it and the the fingers point to Avery Keller, a popular sophomore who for some reason made Jessica her victim, the documentary then takes a look at the life of Avery Keller to see what makes her tick.

The movie pushed all the right buttons for me, I felt it was evenly laid out as we got to see what Jessica is going through which is the more favorable issue, but we also got to see where Avery was coming from. The movie does not attempt to sugar coat her villainy, but we all needed to know what was fueling the fire in order to understand it.

Not bad
