13 Reasons Why

3 posts in this topic

If you have teens (especially, by my informal survey, teenaged daughters), they've likely already watched this series.  In a moment of deep pride for me, my daughter and I co-wrote a review of the series (in which, truth be told, she did the heavy lifting).  We both agree that the show is a substantial success aesthetically (using the talents of folks like Jessica Yu, Gregg Araki, and Tom McCarthy), but fails by its irresponsible handling of serious topics like teen suicide and sexual trauma.  Here's the link to our full analysis:  http://www.patheos.com/blogs/secularcinephile/2017/06/high-school-trauma-edutainment-teenagers-dads-responses-13-reasons/

After reading this commentary on 13 Reasons Why, I thought it would be interesting to compare 13 Reasons with the recent TV movie version of Sara Zarr's Story of a Girl, in which the protagonist struggles with many of the same issues, but with different results.
