Damn fine flick, that.

 

I think it is sad. As I was saying to The Owl - that film reminds me somewhat of what happened to the Catholic school kids who went to my high school - they went nuts with their newly found so-called freedom.

 

I don't much care for the JC deal - but their work ethic is amazing.

That scene where the kid is freaking out on meth thinking he's about to get shot is awful.

I wish I could find a way to squeeze this one into this paper......if I have time I may peruse it.....I just got it as a gift and will likely read it over break. I got it on a recommendation from a fellow VCer....Loretta I think??

Good but painful. It's about girl bullying ("relational aggression") and how it's dismissed/encouraged by our society as "oh that's just girls being girls." Mixes actual women's stories with the author's research and thesis. Some of them are sooooo heartbreaking -- girls being bullied into submission by their peers at age 7, age 30, and every age in between. I think I've got it on my shelf if you'd like me to bring it this weekend.
