The Dirties is a 2013 movie that was directed by Matt Johnson and stars Matt Johnson, Owen Williams, and Padraig Singal. The movie follows the journey of two best friends, Matt and Owen, who are constantly bullied at school. They decide to create a movie where they'll take revenge on their bullies, but their actions spiral out of control.

Matt and Owen are part of a group of misfits who are tormented by a group of jocks led by a character called T.S. Matt is passionate about making movies and they both decide that they will make a movie about themselves getting revenge on their bully. They film themselves and use their imagination to enact various scripted 'revenge scenarios'. Their teacher is somewhat supportive of the plan, as he sees it as an opportunity for them to express themselves artistically.

But as the production of the movie progresses, the lines between real life and fiction begin to blur. The boys become more and more consumed by their desire for revenge and their obsession with the movie. They start to become more withdrawn and harder to reach, even for their closest friends. The situation reaches a boiling point when Owen starts to become increasingly erratic and violent.

The movie is shot from the point of view of Matt's camera, which he uses to document their daily lives and the making of the movie. This handheld style gives the movie a sense of urgency and intimacy, as we see the boys' struggles and triumphs up close.

One of the most interesting aspects of the movie is how it deals with the subject of bullying. It shows the real-life consequences of bullying on the mental health of teenagers and how it can have a lasting impact on their lives. It also highlights the struggles of the school system to deal with the problem effectively.

The Dirties is a powerful and emotional movie that deals with some heavy topics. It's a movie that will leave you thinking and reflecting on the issues long after it's over. The acting is excellent, particularly from Matt Johnson and Owen Williams, who give powerful and nuanced performances as the two best friends. The movie also has a great soundtrack that perfectly captures the mood of the movie.

Overall, The Dirties is a thought-provoking movie that deals with important issues in a sensitive and intelligent way. It's a must-see for anyone who is interested in the subject of bullying or the psychological impact of violence.

The Dirties is a 2013 crime movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 20 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.8 and a MetaScore of 65.
