Storyline

When two friends, Lexi and Jennifer try and get in shape, they start to get rid of their food by vomiting it up. Lexi is then taken to a bulemic center by her worried mom. When she recovers she tells her mom that Jennifer might still have the same problem. Lexi's mom confronts Jennifer's mom and Jennifer get mad at Lexi. Lexi tries to reason to Jennifer at a beach party while Jennifer is drunk and Jennifer refuses and runs away from her. She is then hit by a passing car and Lexi becomes depressed and the vomiting starts again. Written by Kyle <Kyleshivers@aol.com>

Why are there not more films which concentrate on eating disorders?
20 November 2002 | by (North of England) – See all my reviews

I came across this film by accident when listing all the films I wanted my sister to record for me whilst I was on holiday and I am so glad that I included this one. It deals with issues that most directors shy away from, my only problem with this film is that it was made for TV so I couldn't buy a copy for my friend!

It's a touching story about how people with eating disorders don't necessarily shy away from everyone and how many actually have dieting buddies. It brought to my attention that although bulimics can maintain a fairly stable weight, it has more serious consequences on their health that many people are ignorant of.
