Standing Up tells the story of a boy and a girl, ages 11 and 12, who are ostracized by their peer groups at summer camp. The outsiders soon find themselves victims of a vicious prank, but rather than returning to camp to face the humiliation, they decide to take off on the run together. As they slowly navigate what lies ahead, they develop a bond and help each other over- come adversity and start down the path of self-discovery. (c) Arc Entertainment

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The generically titled Standing Up registers as a mildly inspiring if familiar tale of adolescents standing up to bullying."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Insightful, frank look at how two kids survive bullying."
‑ Renee Schonfeld, Common Sense Media
""Standing Up" is mildly entertaining. Basso picks up steam as the movie moves ahead, but for the first third or so she seems to display only whininess."
‑ Marsha McCreadie,
"A throwback to the no-nonsense kidpics common circa 1985."
‑ Peter Debruge, Variety
"A nicely captured if fairly straightforward coming-of-age film about transcending adolescent summer camp bullying."
‑ Brent Simon,
"Ending aches to extract tears, yet it's a mild manipulation, and one that's earned by this kindly, thoughtful drama -- a comfortable alternative for families burned out on animated releases."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"It's unclear who this blandly titled drama is aimed at--devoid as it is of humor or any real hazard and lacking the provocative undertones of its source material."
‑ Annlee Ellingson, Los Angeles Times
"The film's pathos at times seems all-consuming, to where a little more suspense along the way might have helped hold the attention of younger viewers."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
