Valentine Road: ShockYa Movie Review

ShockYa: During the day one press conference at the Sundance Film Festival, festival director John Cooper responded to a question about Hollywood being blamed for the Newtown school massacre by citing Valentine Road as an especially timely entry, one which was selected for the festival before that tragedy occurred. The story of an eighth grader shot to death in his classroom by another student because of his effeminate nature is certainly an important film, yet its argument has a different relevance, one which speaks about the danger of violent influences but also takes a crucial look at bigotry and intolerance. (Indie film, Valetine Road) B+/A+
