“Bully” is the next free film screening in the Edmonds Diversity Film Series, set for Saturday, Jan. 19 at noon.
“Bully” is a poignant and insightful film that examines five cases of youths who endure vicious persecution at the hands of their peers. Ja’meye, 14, winds up in reform school after pulling a gun on the youths who tormented her for years. Cameras record the abuse suffered by 14-year-old Alex as he’s beaten and teased on the bus. Star athlete Kelby, 16, is ostracized and worse after she comes out as lesbian. Most tragic of all, two boys, one 17 and one 12, commit suicide to escape the torture.
The movie will be at the Edmonds Theatre, 415 Main Street, Edmonds. You can learn more about the film series here.
