The Weinstein Company recently purchased a film at the Tribeca Film Festival that seems destined to join the ranks of Davis Guggenheim’s AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH. What, you say, could be as relevant as Al Gore explaining the imminent downfall of the very earth on which we live? Childhood bullying. And the film, Lee Hirsch’s THE BULLY PROJECT, feels extraordinarily pressing. Why? Because the generation of those who are bullied and those who do the bullying are tomorrow’s adults, and their general mental health affects just about everything. And if you’re a parent or a teacher, or currently attending middle or high school yourself – it’s required viewing.
