Bully Contest

One of the most popular and powerful documentaries of last year, Lee Hirsch’s Bully is a film about the continuing crisis of bullying, which affects kids nationwide. In our own review, we call it “an intense, heartbreaking movie that every parent and school official should see.” Now it’s also a particularly important topic relevant to discussions of school violence. And it finally arrives on home video this Tuesday (February 12) on the heels of winning the Audience Choice award at the 2013 Cinema Eye Honors and finishing out the year as the fourth highest-grossing doc of 2012.

You can go ahead and buy a copy right away, or you can try to win a DVD from Film School Rejects, and we’ll throw in a couple promotional anti-bullying rubber wristbands, on which are printed “IT’S TIME TO TAKE A STAND.” The DVD, from Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Compay, features a bunch of bonus tracks, including six deleted scenes (half of which star the teen subject Alex and then one each for Kelby, Caine and Jake). There are also other videos of Alex updating us on how he’s doing today and his appearance on Good Morning America. Another bonus video stars Meryl Streep talking about the film and the issue. 

To enter the drawing for this DVD (a $24.95 value), you must live in the U.S. and follow these easy directions:

First, follow us on Twitter at the Official Film School Rejects Twitter Account (https://twitter.com/rejectnation), then tweet this message: “It’s time to take a stand against bullying with @rejectnation! Check out ‘Bully’ on DVD 2/12/13.” You can also comment below and tell us if you were ever bullied and were able to get through the experience. But that part isn’t necessary to qualify.

I’ll pull a name from a hat after the contest ends at 8pm PT on Tuesday, February 13, and ship the pack out Wednesday, so you won’t have to wait too long after the film hits stores. Good luck!
