Standing Up tells the story of a boy and a girl, ages 11 and 12, who are ostracized by their peer groups at summer camp. The outsiders soon find themselves victims of a vicious prank, but rather than returning to camp to face the humiliation, they decide to take off on the run together. As they slowly navigate what lies ahead, they develop a bond and help each other over- come adversity and start down the path of self-discovery. (c) Arc Entertainment

The generically titled Standing Up registers as a mildly inspiring if familiar tale of adolescents standing up to bullying.
It's unclear who this blandly titled drama is aimed at--devoid as it is of humor or any real hazard and lacking the provocative undertones of its source material.
A nicely captured if fairly straightforward coming-of-age film about transcending adolescent summer camp bullying.
The film's pathos at times seems all-consuming, to where a little more suspense along the way might have helped hold the attention of younger viewers.
"Standing Up" is mildly entertaining. Basso picks up steam as the movie moves ahead, but for the first third or so she seems to display only whininess.
