The Bad Kids is a gorgeous film, visually and stylistically. It's about a group of students whose lives, in many ways, have been filled with uncertainty. We hear their stories of hunger, neglect, abuse, substance use, and poverty, and yet they show up to school, they strive, and, with support from the staff and faculty at Black Rock High School, they begin to thrive. They are resilient and they are capable of anything. Theirs are the stories we need right now.
