Middle & High school years are not easy by any means. Between the changes your body goes through to demanding academics, it is by far an ideal time in your life. If you add bullying into the mix, things gets a lot harder to say the least. This past weekend I had the opportunity to watch a screener of the upcoming movie A Girl Like Her and let me just say it brought back memories that ’till this day still affect the way I remember those high school years.
A GIRL LIKE HER – Final Theatrical Trailer
The fictional movie A Girl Like Her follows the story of Jessica Burns a 16-year old who is being bullied by her childhood friend, Avery Keller. Through the movie we get to experience first hand both side of bullying. First, we see how in desperation, Jessica with the help of her best friend Brian Slater, decides to record the abuse at the hand of Avery. After a series of events, the movie let’s us witness how Avery responds to the rumors of bullying towards Jessica.
In my opinion this movie is a life changer, if you are a teen, tween, a mother, a father, a teacher, administrator or whomever, you must see this movie. This movie is meant to educate everyone and it will get the ball rolling to help bring awareness to everyone who has experienced this or has been a bully themselves. It is time to stop the hatred & harassment between us human beings and start loving & respecting one another. Go see the movie, in theaters March 27, and then come back and share with us your experience.
Sophomore year has been a nightmare for Jessica Burns. Relentlessly harassed by her former friend Avery Keller, Jessica doesn’t know what she did to deserve the abuse from one of South Brookdale High’s most popular and beautiful students. But when a shocking event changes both of their lives, a documentary film crew, a hidden digital camera, and the attention of a reeling community begin to reveal the powerful truth about A Girl Like Her.
