Thumbs up A girl like her (Film based on bullying and the impacts) - August 30th 2016, 03:15 PM

Heeeeeey hey.

Has anyone seen this film? I watched it quite a few nights ago and admittedly cried my eyes out (because it touched me in so man ways; Suicide and bullying) but it so so good and eye opening and is based on a true story. If you have, what do you think?

If you haven't, you should give it a go BUT personally, I think you need to be in an okayish state of mind because some people might find it hard to watch or see it as triggering.

I also like the facebook page. I think Ii am right by saying its not just based on one true story but the reason I like it is its set out more like a documentary that a film and you see both sides but more so because if you look further in to it, they don't see the bully as a "bad" person as such. They kind of see it that actually that person may need help too and there may well be an underlying issue causing them to bully.

Anyway I'll stop rambling, but yeah. GO.

I saw this and thought it was a pretty great movie. Normally I really don't like movies about bullying, I think it's been overgeneralized among other things. However I thought this film did a good job, especially showing the other sides.

I could definitely see this movie after what happened to a former bully a few weeks back. Thanks for sharing this, Jessie!

I watched it a couple nights ago. My favorite film about bullying now. It was amazing! Everything about it screamed "so true" and how they potrayed the Keller family and gave context to the popular girl who hides a lot of pain inside. And how she transforms with the right kind of intervention. The kind that has compassion towards her yet still holds her accountable.

I watched it on Netflix today and yeah it was really triggering for me... Its was hard to watch it all but I did. I was bullied all the time in middle and high school so it brought back some things I would rather forget. But, I think the message this film sends is a powerful one. I totally agree with Palmolive this is a good and eye opening film.

Thanks for sharing....
