Adam Maagoul, also 12, added after the screening, “That’s not right. People shouldn’t do that stuff,”
Michelle Liu, 11, said what stood out to her most was how the movie “shows aspects of every kind, applying to everyone. It shows how people get bullied every day and what you can do to help.”
For Hodgman, the movie “takes it to a whole new depth, and makes it personal,” she said.
“It’s not fun. It’s traumatizing,” she said. “But it’s good that Andover is taking the steps to prevent bullying any way they can.”
