    Hi! Thanks for your time and your post. I have watched the entire series and am conflicted…you are right in that it Pulls no punches.  It is harsh and unfortunately very realistic of the issues that plague Our youth and our schools. Every parent must decide for themselves however it is also important for parents to know that your child will hear about this series and simply saying “no you’re not watching it” will not protect them. They will hear all about it from their friend’s perspective…maybe that’s not so good. This is a topic that needs to be discussed openly and parents need to be prepared for the fact that their children likely know more than they think.  Yes the film was hard to watch and i cried several times. There was not several characters raped, there was two. The second rape scene is not 10 minutes long, it Happens in a hot tub, there is not really nudity if any and much of the scene focuses on her fists. Even at that it is Hard to watch. A big point of the movie also is the secrecy that all the kids participate in that leads to these events. Secrecy is another speaking point for parents and all the secrets come out in the end and some relief is felt among the characters. Powerful movie and painful. I don’t think it should be boycotted or swept under the rug. I think its also extremely important for parents to talk to their kids about how they treat others and bullying And what exactly bullying is. Bullying is even just listening to gossip Or being a bystander to it. The other major point of the movie is the powerful message that we need to pay attention of how others are feeling around us. We also need to be vigilant about Being kind.  In in the movie Hannah did not kill her self because of one incident she killed her self because of many incidences and one friend or person could have made a difference. ReplyCancel

    Appreciate your research so very much Renee, our girls are not interested as yet, but at 10 and 12, It’s good to have the heads up on such school discussions well before it becomes an issue.ReplyCancel

    parents should Consider an age restrictiin on this movie, not sure it is right for a 13 year old. But a definite for 17 year olds.THAT’S dependent on how much freedom you give your teenagers. But watch the last episode and the motivation for doiNg this movie it may change your perception of it all. There is a lot of good that can come from the movie THROUGH engaging with teenagers on the issues that are dealt with. ReplyCancel

      Completely agree Wendy – the benefit of this movie will come in engaging with your kids and watching it with them /  speaking to them about the issues discussed, if (and when) they are old enough to watch the graphic content of this series then they can watch it if parents want them to.ReplyCancel

    Thank you for this very incitefful review.  I have 12 year old daughters that are in Middle school and are far too young to see this, however I feel that after reading your post, it would be too upsetting for me to watch as well.  If I do decide to watch it at a later time, the review by episode is very helpful.  ReplyCancel
