Like most Lifetime movies, it's pretty dramatic, and it relies a bit too heavily on the continual replay of the vicious attack to make its point. But the overall film is successful in sending some very strong and clear anti-bullying messages. It also identifies some of the real emotional and legal consequences that results from posting acts of bullying, and other inappropriate behavior, on the Internet.

The movie highlights some of the disturbing trends that are appearing on the Internet thanks to the widespread use of computers, smartphones, and social networking sites. It also notes how the easy access to digital media outlets is motivating people looking for fame or notoriety to post inappropriate material online. Throughout it all, it underscores the need for responsibility, regulation, and parental guidance when it comes to communicating online.

Did we miss something on diversity?
