ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)-- On Tuesday more than 150 school administrators and students got a private screening of "Bully" a documentary about the lives of kids bullied on a daily basis.  School reach a parent notification company gave out the free tickets at the Plaza Frontenac. They also started a new anonymous cyber bullying hotline for students in need of help.

We asked movie goers about their reactions to the film and the issue of bullying. Students say they plan to take the message of standing up for victims back to school.

"When I saw the funeral of the kid Tyler it that really hit me like wow people die over this and kill themselves over this it really hit me," said student James Washington.

Now with more light shed on the issue of bullying, many are hoping to bring the issue that's been plaguing schools across the country to an end.
