I stumbled upon this, it played last Thursday in the Denver area. I hope I get the chance to see it.

Let me know what you think!

It seems interesting. I like that, for once, they really focus on down-to-earth issues only. It's not about gun control, it's not about the media, video games, drugs or medicine. It's not really about society either, it's just about the home, the family and how parents can help their child and prevent dramatic events from happening.

I also like how it seems not to focus on potential mass shooters only. I always think that focusing too much on the very few teenagers who can become violent and become school shooters can overshadow the much more numerous young people who are depressed and who might kill themselves only. And yet, if you try to help depressed teenagers in general, not only violent ones, you may prevent both mass shootings and suicides. School shootings and suicides are two different ways for dealing with a very similar issue.

They’re showing this in Denver in August! I’ll get tickets.

Looks really good. I like the focus on mental health and the flashbacks of Sue.
Really paints a bleak picture of what it must of been like to find out your son was a killer.

I do have to say... I hope we might hear something new from Sue.

It's very interesting to see Dr.Peter Langman and Sue Klebold appearing in a very well put together documentary (well judging from the trailer). It's also good to see a documentary focusing more on the mental health aspects of the whole thing. I hope it does get a wider release in the near future.

That looks amazing!! I love the little mantra at the end that says “love is not enough.” I REALLY like how they tie in how important mental health is on a daily basis for so many of our young people and not just when these huge events like mass school/workplace shootings occur.

Hopefully it will be released somewhere so more people will have access to it!

Hopefully it does get released to buy or watch online.
I live in Europe and wanna see this documentation, too.
It looks very interesting, especially that Dr. Peter Langman and Sue Klebold (for sure) are included in there.

There is also a website from the production company: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Thanks for sharing that trailer. It looks really good. I don’t see why it won’t be played across the nation or at least for sale on iTunes or something eventually. You’ll have to let us know how it was. The re-enactment scenes look like they came from Sue’s book.

Side note: Mental health is really important. We need to allow all people access to help regardless of income. So documentaries like this need to be out for everyone to see it. We have to open our eyes.

I hope this movie touches on how bullying can lead to mental deteoriation.
