Event description

Description

This film is rated PG-13. Parents, students and all community members are invited to attend. The movie will be followed by a Student Discussion Panel.
About the film:
The New York Times: "Spurred by the medical and emotional problems of her own three children, Ms. Abeles embarked on a deeply personal inquiry into the insanely hectic lives of too many of our offspring. Rushing from class to sports practice, from community work to homework, and relying increasingly on stimulants and sleep deprivation, these kids seem more pressured than the average C.E.O. Documenting consequences that range from depression to eating disorders to suicide, the film's medical professionals share Ms. Abeles' alarm and her awareness that blame, if it exists, is systemic and with little current incentive to change."
