    Default Bully

    Hey Gang,

    I'm looking for a little feedback regarding the movie Bully. From what I've seen and read about it, this is a movie I believe should by as many people as possible. I had hoped to take my two teenage kids o it, but here in good ol my town it has been shut down a couple of times with (apparently) threats of legal action.
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    This next part could really confuse things. Let's stay focused. #asis

    What is the basis of the threatened legal action?

    It's difficult for to say exactly to say what the threat was. Two theaters in our city have pulled the plug on the movie, and a couple of community groups that have attempted to show the film have been stopped as well.
    It appears to be a branch of the Provincial Government's Health Services department that has been blocking the film, in conjunction with at least one of the local school boards.

    There have been some concerns over some teen suicides in our community recently, and thus someone has decided this movie now should not be seen here. However, there are many, myself included that think these concerns are exactly why the movie needs to be shown.

    I tend to agree. The extent of the problem didn't hit home for me until I learned that an acquaintance of mine found his 11-year old hanging in her closet a month or so ago. They believe she killed herself because of bullying at school. So when I heard of this movie I read up on it, and it looks like it brings needed awareness to the problem.
