Michael Thompson on 207!

Michael Thompson did a great job talking about Bullying / Friendship on 207

Again, not loving the "mean girl" discourse (I do love Lyn Michel Brown's book about the topic and her work with Hardy Girls) but still so many important issues to talk about :

Also, the Bully Movie is coming to Maine.  Below is an email from Eveningstar Cinema in Brunswick:

Dear Fellow Cinephiles:I was a victim of bullying. From third grade right through high school, I was constantly bullied, for all the usual reasons - I was small, weak, afraid, Jewish. I remember the names of everyone who bullied me, and some go back almost 50 years. To this day, I have no idea what I would do if I ever confronted them. This is why the film Bully is so important. If you have ever been bullied; been the one doing the bullying; a parent of someone who has been bullied; the parent of a bully; no connection to bullying at all - this is a film you must see. Period.
