Audrie & Daisy is Netflix’s latest documentary, and it is a gut-punch of a film. It follows the lives of Audrie Pott and Daisy Coleman, two girls who didn’t know each other but who were both sexually assaulted and bullied afterwards.
The documentary is powerful and important, showing interviews with the boys who sexually assaulted both Audrie and Daisy, and hearing what they did to them was heartbreaking. Sadly, Audrie’s story doesn’t have a happy ending,while Daisy suffered extensively. The film does go in depth with what occurred, so viewer discretion is advised.
I only wished that the documentary showed us more of Audrie and Daisy and their life prior to their attacks so we could get to know these beautiful souls better. Besides that one nitpick, I found this to be a powerful, heartbreaking documentary on how two girls lives were irrevocably changed due to horrendous assaults and bullying. It’s heart-wrenching and sometimes tough to watch, but I implore that you do.
