“Stand up for truth”
I stumbled upon this movie on Netflix and I have to say that I’m very glad I did. Nowhere Safe is a made for tv movie from 2014.
The plot summary is pretty self explanatory: After two girls cruelly impersonate her online in a “reverse cyber bullying” plot, Ashley’s reputation is ruined and she and her mother flee a growing threat to their lives. Starting over at a new school, romantic interests and the poignant lessons from an eccentric history teacher draw them out of seclusion until they realize confronting a hurtful past is essential to ensure a brighter future (from IMDB.com).
What I really liked about this movie is that it offers a clear solution to teens about standing up for themselves and for the truth. Because this takes place online, moving schools doesn’t help and so the best thing that someone in this situation can do is fight back with the truth. The movie doesn’t have any inappropriate scenes or language so it’s appropriate for a wide range of ages. I would highly recommend showing this movie in schools and I think it’s a message that many students will be able to learn from.
