Plot – Spoilers:
Bobby and Marty have been best friends since childhood, but their relationship is dominant-submissive. Marty hates that he is regularly beaten up by Bobby, but can’t summon the will to shake himself out of the abuse. His passion is surfing and while he’s pretty good at it, he’s all but given up on the dream. But things begin to change when he meets Lisa, who questions Bobby’s dominance and plants the seed that abuse need not be permanent.

Bully is based on the real life story of Bobby Kent and is one of Larry Clark’s better features thanks mainly to its talented cast. And while it is based on factual incidents, it does a great job of capturing how easy it can be at a certain age to plan and plot something extreme, and yet how difficult it can be to pull it off successfully. And also how each character deals with the pre and post-incident nerves.

Random:
Director Larry Clark plays the hitman’s Dad in a couple of scenes.

    This movie was good to watch and it’s crazy that it’s true. One thing there was never a time that they didn’t have a cigarettes or a joint in their hand. Also you never give your kids too much Freedom you keep them in an activities and you know where they are at all times these kids were able to do whatever they wanted they were bored

    Still, great movie, the teens are not really likable and not the smartest (fav had to be the hitman), but still recommend !! >:^]
