Clair Defina is in her early thirties with an affluent job as a writer in New York. However, her life is plagued by anxiety, suffering severe panic attacks wherever she goes. Clair grew up with her parents in a commune, before leaving with her father after her mother died in a fire. Her friend Isolda encourages Clair to return to the town of Edgeport, and she is immediately recognised by many who knew her parents. She decides to stick around for a while, intrigued by the mystery of the townsfolk, and takes up residence with her long lost Aunt Dora. It isn't long before she realises that there's something very wrong in this town, and everyone seems to be hiding a dark secret. With the help of Isolda, they set out to uncover the mystery, but meanwhile she is being closely watched by Frank - the bastard son of the face of Edgeport, Cyrus Gest - who appears to be the only one in the town she can trust, even if nobody else does.

Mary and Mark Hughes vacate to their country vacation home with their 9-year-old son Brendon to help rebuild their troubled marriage following the traumatic and sudden death of their 6-year-old daughter. Guilt, blame and grief are causing tensions within the family and, understandably, all Mary is concerned with is making sure her little boy is safe. It's a quiet time of year when they make their way to their secluded cottage, however it isn't long before a new set of seemingly friendly neighbors, Bobby and Jane Sakowski with their son Jared, make themselves known to the Hugheses who politely ask them to join them for dinner despite feeling less than sociable. It soon becomes clear that the Sakowskis have invested far too much interest in the family and, sure enough, they turn on the Hugheses, setting out on a murderous quest to steal the identity of what they believe is the perfect family.

Little Athens is no Pulp Fiction. We've got a small-time drug dealing kid (John Patrick Amedori) who steals a stash from his own dealer's dead cousin, a pair of EMTs (Erica Leerhsen and Rachel Miner) each dealing with issues of love and lust, and two slack-jawed losers (DJ Qualls and Jorge Garcia) who have just been evicted.

A slam-dunk natural subject for Clark, Bully follows the based-on-reality story of Marty Puccio (Brad Renfro), who along with his girlfriend Lisa (Rachel Miner) decides to brutally slay his "best friend" Bobby (Nick Stahl) as payback for a lifetime of abuse. Set in the ultra-trashy nether regions of southern Florida -- and I mean seriously, beyond-WWF trashy -- there's little to do but drive your car, play video games, have sex, and beat the crap out of your friends.

A troubling vérité-style docudrama about worthless, contemptible, murderous teenage losers, "Bully" is a raw and graphic, half cautionary tale, half exploitation flick, similar to director Larry Clark's controversial 1995 film "Kids."
But as infamous as "Kids" was for its grossly candid depiction of drug use and careless, even vengeful sex, it was largely fictional. "Bully" isn't quite as coarse, but may be more chilling as it is based on true events: The circumstances surrounding the very premeditated but very sloppy slaying of a malevolent south Florida delinquent who physically intimidated and verbally abused his friends until, well, they killed him.
Fascinating in a "Cops"-meets-Psychology Today, can't-help-but-look kind of way, every character in this film is a vile imbecile -- the kind of nitwits who genuinely look to angry white rapper Eminem as a role model.
