About the Movie
More than 13 million American kids will be bullied this year, making it the most common form of violence experienced by young people in the nation. BULLY, one of the most buzzed about documentaries in recent years, brings a human scale to this startling statistic, offering an intimate, unflinching look at how bullying has touched five kids and their families. Filmed over the course of the 2009/2010 school year, BULLY opens a window onto the pained and often endangered lives of bullied kids, revealing a problem that transcends geographic, racial, ethnic and economic borders.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The best Hirsch's film can do, in the end, is remind us that bullying means more than we admit, and its effects aren't always immediately clear, even to loved ones.
Fresh: "Bully" doesn't need research or great filmmaking or narrative focus, per se. It needs only the shaming power of its relentlessness and a young audience open to sharing in that shame.
Fresh: A deeply moving but highly selective look at the effects of bullying on children and teenagers.
Rotten: Hirsch seldom gets face time with any bullies or their parents, and he tends to ignore the complicated social and psychological patterns that feed the problem.
