Somebody told that this is a difficult film to watch, for the first part of the film, that's a bit of an understatement. I can't help but feel that kids of that age should not be asked to act in scenes like this, I hope that they were doing so unknowlingly. In general the story is not too bad, pretty harrowing but interesting. I'm all for people making challenging films, I don't think that taboo topics like those in this film should be brushed under the carpet, but I think that to portray them in the way it was done in this film is a bit weird. It's almost like the filmmaker was saying "these sort of things happen so let's just accept that, while it's an ordeal for some, for others it's not that bad, so let's build a story around it".
SPOILER ALERT - I'd feel a bit better about it if the ending, which seemed to show a moment of clarigy had involved some sort of justice being done against the coach.
