The Lake Theatre is pleased to announce the opening of an important documentary called “Bully” (PG-13) on April 20th. Directed by Sundance and Emmy award-winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, “Bully” highlights the most common form of violence experienced by young people in the nation, with over 13 million American children to be bullied this year. The film brings human scale to this startling statistic, offering an intimate, unflinching look at how bullying has touched five kids and their families. Show times are 12:15pm, 2:30pm, 4:45pm, 7pm, and 9:15pm at the Lake Theatre,1022 Lake Street in downtown Oak Park

“Bully” is a beautifully cinematic, character-driven documentary. At its heart are those personally touched by bullying, opening a window onto the pained and often endangered lives of bullied kids. Filmed over the course of the 2009/2010 school year, “Bully” reveals a problem that transcends geographic, racial, ethnic and economic borders. It documents the responses of teachers and administrators to aggressive behaviors that defy “kids will be kids” clichés, and it captures a growing movement among parents and youths to change how bullying is handled in schools, in communities, and in society as a whole.
