When two best friends team up to film a comedy about getting revenge on bullies, the exercise takes a devastating turn when one of them begins to think of it as more than a joke.

Winner of the 2013 Slamdance Festival Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Feature
“Remarkable as much for its insights as for its audacity, The Dirties approaches school violence with a comic veneer that slowly shades into deep darkness.”
- Jeannette Catsoulis (New York Times)
