good, and unusually graphic
31 May 2003 | by (the cosmos) – See all my reviews

I saw the episode about the bulimic girl, played by Calista Flockhart, in health class. It provided a visceral, graphic look into eating disorders and stayed with me a while. The whole vomit-in-the-closet thing was disgusting. The movie overall showed the horrifying reality of bulimia in an excellent way.
