Summary Teens Like Phil explores the complicated and painful circumstances surrounding a relationship in an effort to better understand the roots of the bullying epidemic. Phil, a shy, insecure teenager growing up in an affluent suburb, is trapped in the painful throes of adolescence, while simultaneously struggling to come to terms with his sexuality. At his elite private school, Phil is picked on by his former friend and love interest, Adam, who frequently lashes out with violence against Phil and enjoys humiliating him in the locker room. But Phil is not the only victim of abuse; Adam is regularly assaulted by his older brother, Nick. Phil's home life isn't much better. His mother is oblivious to his struggles, and his father resents him for being insufficiently masculine. As the bullying intensifies, both at school and at home, the back story of Phil and Adam's ill-fated relationship is revealed. Filmmakers Dominic Haxton and David Rosler's bold short film examines bullying in a way never before captured on screen--a must see for teens and adults struggling to come to terms with the realities of youth struggles, and the cyclical nature of bullying.
