While di­rec­tor Lee Hirsch should be con­grat­u­lated for turn­ing the cam­eras on school-age bul­lies and high­light­ing the need for ac­tion, it’s un­clear who would ac­tu­ally pay to buy this DVD. Cer­tainly not par­ents of chil­dren who are be­ing bul­lied. They are liv­ing the story of vic­tim­i­sa­tion Hirsch shows. Cer­tainly not the par­ents of the bul­lies be­cause, as one mum says in a town meet­ing shown in the doco, they don’t care. And not any­one in a po­si­tion of power in schools be­cause there are no so­lu­tions or hints here on how to tackle the prob­lem. What stays with you if you do watch, though, are the faces of the par­ents whose chil­dren com­mit sui­cide rather than face the hor­ror of go­ing to school. ★★★ Ex­tras: None
