A DOCUMENTARY on school bullying has divided audiences across Australia after its theatrical release, but it seems Rockhampton may have to wait a little longer to see the controversial film.

The film, Bully, follows real-life victims of bullying and the effects that behaviour has on the individuals.

Described as "confronting" by many, the film depicts tragic events in the young children's lives as they struggle to deal with the emotional torment inflicted upon them, with one 11-year-old boy in the film committing suicide.

As one of the most talked about films of the year, demand to see Bully has been high, but local movie-goers have been disappointed the film has not been released in Rockhampton.

One disgruntled patron has already contacted The Bulletin concerned the film is not scheduled for a release in Rockhampton, but Rockhampton's Birch Carroll and Coyle assistant manager Rominesh Ayre said it was a distribution issue that has prevented the film from screening.

"These films have limited copies available only for selected cities, and at this stage we have no scheduled release for this film," he said.

Mr Ayre said while there were no plans to show the film in Rockhampton, if demand was high they would request a copy.
