Intense and so well executed
1 March 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film is an extraordinary performance by Antoine Olivier Pilon, who seems mature well beyond his years. A story of bullying and homophobia in schools - which could be anywhere - this depiction highlights the sense of entrapment felt by teenagers when in crisis. These are magnified by the power of technology and the omnipresence of the harassment, 24/7.

I have read the earlier reviews and am astounded - did they watch the same film as I had?

This is brilliantly directed, down to the athletics scenes. They were so realistic.

I hate the use of "important" when it comes to movies, but for many confronted by bullying - either as victims or perpetrators - there can be few other words to describe this.

I was profoundly affected by this piece - it was moody, sensitive, raw and brutal.
