Ariela Rubin on Gully (2019) Tribeca 2019
I don't want to give anything away since that's a big part of the movie. Gully is a story of how trauma affected these boys. It's a very heavy, and intense film. Depressing too. Just when you think you know what's going to happen, something awful happens next, and wondering the fate of these boys will give you anxiety.
After the film, at the Q&A, the writer, Marcus J. Guillory, said he took stories from real life, from his observations, and from speaking to kids. He said these are the stories of the daily lives that you won't see on the news, but are more common than you think, and he wanted to give them a voice.
I recommend it, but it's a heavy one for sure!
