NO PLACE TO HIDE: THE RE­HTAEH PAR­SONS STORY

NOW Magazine - Hot Docs - - Reviews -

(Rama Rau, Canada). 47 min­utes. Rat­ing: NNN As­pects of this sum­mary of the shock­ing case of bul­ly­ing vic­tim Re­htaeh Par­sons, who even­tu­ally com­mit­ted sui­cide, be­tray its made-for-TV ori­gins – es­pe­cially its ten­dency to give short shrift to too many is­sues.

But when it keeps its fo­cus on the way the school, jus­tice and health care sys­tems failed the high school stu­dent who tried to re­port her rape and sub­se­quent cy­ber- bul­ly­ing, it’s pow­er­ful.

Par­sons’s fa­ther, Glen Can­ning, who ex­presses his out­rage at the in­sti­tu­tional rot, is an es­pe­cially com­pelling fig­ure. SGC Apr 26, 7: 30 pm, TIFF 2; Apr 27, 1:15 pm, TIFF 3; May 3, 1 pm, Royal
