'Bully' Trailer: Documentary Sheds Light On Bullying Epidemic In Schools (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"Over 13 million American kids will be bullied this year," read the press notes for "Bully," an award-winning documentary set for release in March, "making it the most common form of violence experienced by young people in the nation." Directed by Lee Hirsch, the film -- which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last April -- follows five families and how they each deal with the growing epidemic in America's schools.

The Weinstein Company has debuted a new trailer for the documentary, which you can watch above. (Advice: have some tissues on hand before doing so.) If you want to find out more about "Bully" and the film's "Stop Bullying, Speak Up!" campaign, head over to the official website.

"Bully" is out in limited release on March 30.
