Background via IMDB: This year, over 13 million American kids will be bullied at school, online, on the bus, at home, through their cell phones and on the streets of their towns, making it the most common form of violence young people in this country experience. BULLY is the first feature documentary film to show how we’ve all been affected by bullying, whether we’ve been victims, perpetrators or stood silent witness. The world we inhabit as adults begins on the playground. BULLY opens on the first day of school. For the more than 13 million kids who’ll be bullied this year in the United States, it’s a day filled with more anxiety and foreboding than excitement. As the sun rises and school busses across the country overflow with backpacks, brass instruments and the rambunctious sounds of raging hormones, this is a ride into the unknown. For a lot of kids, the only thing that’s certain is that this year, like every other, bullying will be a big part of whatever meets them at their school’s front doors. Every school in the U.S. is grappling with bullying-each day more than 160,000 kids across the country are absent because they’re afraid of being bullied-but for many districts it’s just one more problem that gets swept under the rug. BULLY is a character-driven film. At its heart are those with the most at stake and whose stories each represent a different facet of this crisis. From the first day of school through the last, BULLY will intimately explore the lives of a few of the many courageous people bullying will touch this year.

  10. I think that its sad that everyone one gets treated differently in the world . I didnt think Tyler would actually kill himself . He had a good life but just not the bullying . It drives me crazy seeing people bully others . Just because they just want to get famous , or tr to show off in front of their friends !! I think that everyone should be treated the same , no matter what . Everyone says that they will try to stop it . Its not going to stop because some people are addicted to bullying other stundents/people . I just think its unfair , and its mean to do .

  11. I found this video at YouTube and i put it in facebook so my friends could see it. I found really hardware For the kid that gets pushed around and stuff. I mean bully has gone For a long time and i dont think it will be ever stoped but, we can decrease it. To be honest I have bullied Kids and regreat that, I have been bullied by Kids, and I will stand againest bully

  12. I Think This Is Very Sad People Should Bully Others Because When You Bully Someone No One Would Longer Like You And Thinks Kid Got His Head Smashed In A Wall Like Seriously People Treat People with Respect People Are Different Deall With It Your Words Hurt And Your Words Are Killing People Soo Nock It Off And I Fell Really Bad For This Kid I Cryed This Is Sad That Is My Opinon.

    summery: childeren and adults are bullied all the time. Some are even bullied to a point to were life is too much for them, and kill them selfs. This is sad that we as humans, who should know better then to this, push people to a point like this. I do hope this movie will show the wrongs we have done, and stop this from happening any more.

    Summary: This kid Tyler loved to learn and go to school. he wasn’t fitting in and he was being bullied. He wasn’t just hurt with words but he was physically bullied. He couldn’t take it anymore. He commited suicide. I feel bad for people who are treated this way. Hopefully no one else experiences this.
