Mirroring the Phoebe Prince tragedy, Tease is about vicious teen bullying — but in a rare twist, it’s told from the bully’s side of the story, not the victim’s. After Emma’s suicide, Sara won’t apologize for slut-shaming and tormenting the girl while she was alive, making chilling statements like ”No one hung the rope for her.” Through discussions with her lawyers and therapist, a complex story unfolds. Is Sara really an irredeemable criminal, as the media and her community suggest, or a deeply insecure kid herself? This intense debut thoughtfully probes the tough questions but doesn’t offer easy answers. B+
