    Cyberbully  is a television film that premiered on July 17, 2011 on ABC Family. ABC Family worked with Seventeen magazine to make the film, and hopes it will "delete digital drama". The film tells the story of a teenage girl who is bullied online. It was filmed in Montreal. 

    Reading: The Plot: Cyberbully. Read the text about Taylor and then answer the questions below.

     

    Taylor Hillridge (Emily Osment) is a teenage girl who is being raised by her single mother, Kris (Kelly Rowan), along with her younger brother, Eric (Robert Naylor), living in St. Louis, Missouri. She is close friends with two other girls, Samantha Caldone (Kay Panabaker) and Cheyenne Mortenson (Meaghan Rath). Earlier, Taylor made a seemingly innocuous comment to one of her classmates, Lindsay Fordyce (Nastassia Markiewicz), to which Lindsay took great offense.

    She receives a computer for her seventeenth birthday from her mom. At first, Taylor is excited by the independence of going online without her mother always watching her. Meanwhile, her crush, Scott asks her to the dance, to which she says yes. Cheyenne is happy for her, but Samantha does not like Scott because she previously went out with his friend, who later dumped her after he had sex with her. Taylor soon finds herself the victim of cyberbullying when she becomes a member of a social website named Cliquesters.

    Things begin to go wrong when Taylor's brother, Eric, hacks into her account and posts a defamatory message about his sister, having been angry at her when she refused to let him use the laptop. Students at school write horrid comments about her and she becomes afraid to face her friends at school. Taylor also meets a guy named James online and thinks he is just being nice, but winds up spreading a rumor that Taylor slept with him and ended up giving him "the clap". Taylor gets pegged as a "slut" and "whore" as a result of the bullying. The abuse that Taylor receives from the hands of her schoolmates pushes her to a breaking point. Scott also tells Taylor that he cannot take her to the dance because of an excuse that obviously sounds made up (that his mom is forcing him to take another girl) and Cheyenne and Samantha begin to turn their backs on Taylor.

    Overcome with depression, Taylor posts a video online saying that she can no longer live with herself. Samantha sees this and quickly goes to Taylor's house and finds her trying to commit suicide by overdosing with pills, but cannot get the cap off. Taylor is then sent to a hospital. Taylor's mom learns from the incident and takes on the school system and state legislation to prevent others from going through the same problem as her daughter. Taylor's mom recommends that she go to a support group and get help. Meanwhile, Samantha finds Scott at a cafe and insults him for leaving Taylor. Taylor finds that one of her classmates, Caleb is going through the same exact thing, only he is targeted for being gay. Taylor finds support in the group and deals with the bullying much better. She finds out that her best friend Samantha is the one who created the "James" profile and set Taylor up. Samantha feels guilty and becomes a victim of cyberbullying herself. Taylor finds out about this and tells her about her support group and eventually forgives Samantha, rekindling their friendship.

    In the end, Taylor, Samantha, Cheyenne, Caleb, and Scott all stand up against Lindsay. Other classmates witnessing Taylor standing up to Lindsay realize how bullying is terrible, and antagonize Lindsay for her abuse. A law is then passed against cyberbullying.

    Today we've watched a short movie about the lack of sensitivity among young people nowadays... The movie is so touching that students didn't know what to say when they finished watching it. In our opinion it is closely connected with the problem of bullying through abusing social media and looking for sensation instead of helping those who are in need. What is your opinion about it?
