Description

Audrie and Daisy are like most teenage American girls: They come from loving families, go to good schools, spend time on social media. And sometimes, at parties with their friends, they drink. After nights of binge drinking, both Audrie and Daisy were assaulted by boys they knew—assaults that continued the morning after on social media, where they were accused of having somehow been responsible for the crimes. Sadly, the similarities between Audrie and Daisy end here. This all too-common nightmarish scenario drove Audrie to hang herself, while Daisy survived her suicide attempt. The film’s unpacking of the complexities surrounding cases like these is required viewing for parents of teenagers, and may inspire open conversations about tough issues and safe havens in dire circumstances. In Person: Director Bonni Cohen.
