Bully: Review Revue

"Bully" has been in the news lately, not only because of its topical look at the effects of bullying on children but also because of a tiff with the MPAA. This documentary, which chronicles the adverse effects of harassment on five students and their families, was slapped with an R rating for its strong language. Its distributor, the Weinstein Company, has released "Bully" unrated, after arguing unsuccessfully that a PG-13 rating would allow the film to be seen and discussed by a broader age range of students. Critics have largely praised the film, calling it a moving, empathetic examination of an important issue. It’s currently at 97 percent on the Tomatometer; read what the critics have to say here:
