The synopsis of *That's What I Am" here at commonsensemedia.org is pretty complete, yet I managed to only gloss over it as I hunted for something family-friendly to stream via Netflix on family movie night. I simply noticed the "Age 10" label and we went with it. No regrets, really, but it ended up being a movie we paused a few times to allow for parenting movie breaks. First, the bullying depicted is particularly cruel with moments of real brutality, at least for kids. Though a well-versed movie goer may be able to quickly identify more intense other depictions of bullying in other movies, this one still provided a clear snapshot of how horrible bullying is and how courageous the victims have to be in order to survive and overcome. Second, I *completely* glossed over the bit about "homo" in the synopsis. Left to my own devices I would have waited a bit longer to explain homosexuality to my daughter (I'd already marked the calendar to have that chat on her 40th birthday). Still it was a good discussion we had and I really admire how the topic was handled in the film, a message that tolerance is the ideal, and a recognition that intolerance may always be around. Age 10 may well be the appropriate age for this film as my daughter was able to handle all the heavy themes. Still, I wouldn't have minded waiting another year or so before seeing this film with her.
