It's a charming and moving little film, starring Dame Judi Dench and Steve Coogan. It tells the true story of an Irish woman who, as a teen, became pregnant and was forced into the Magdalene Sisters' care.

Lee Hirsch's Bully can't help but move you. It's an important and powerful film, one that should be required viewing for kids of any age -- and their parents.

I was shocked when the MPAA awarded my film Miral an "R" rating. Women are objectified constantly in PG-13 movies, and such objectification is rewarded with a friendlier rating.
