Very powerful and very well-acted documentary

Wow, this film was great. It was a very raw glimpse into the reality of teasing, bullying and peer pressure amongst teenagers. This should be compulsory viewing for all media studies students in high schools. It also gave me encouragement that I had been bullied at school, but I've come out the other side and made a successful life and career for myself.
