It's the movie that shined a bright spotlight on bullying in schools. Tuesday, Western Iowa Tech hosted a screening of the movie, "Bully."
The movie follows the lives of five students, who encounter bullying on a regular basis. Among them... Alex Libby, who was a student at East Middle school student, when the movie was made.
While "Bully" was just released on DVD, some parents think the focus on bullying has shifted... even though bullying probably hasn't stopped. "I think it has fallen to the side, but I don't think it's stopped, I don't think it's diminished from the students. I think they just stopped saying anything, because as the video showed, there's not a whole lot the school can do, there's not a whole lot working parents can do. Really just left all by themselves," said Michelle Donelson, McCook Lake, North Sioux City, South Dakota.
The movie made the "short list" of films given Oscar consideration in the "best documentary" category. But, it didn't get a nomination.
