Today’s DVD donation? Halifax, Va. discovers the traumas of a Belgian school’s Playground”

This engrossing drama about bullying and its impact not just on the boy directly subject to it, but to his sister, stay at home dad, family and a school bureaucracy helpless to handle it has a lot to offer…and subtitles. It’s in French. Let’s hope tiny Halifax, Va. is up for it.

Playground” is a challenging, rewarding and sometimes heartbreaking film, well worth checking out.
