In my case this film back-fired
18 March 2003 | by (Sarasota, Florida) – See all my reviews

The film in which Calista Flockhart plays a young woman with an eating disorder was well-made I thought. But through no fault of the film or it's creators this film had some negative results. I'm sure the people who made the movie wanted to discourage young girls like myself from ever developing an eating disorder. Unfortunately this film taught me how to have an eating disorder, at least I used it as a place to get tips because it really goes into great detail about this girls methods of fasting and purging. I would write it off as a fluke but I recently learned that Christina Ricci reacted the same way to this film. So, despite the quality and intentions of this movie, if you are a young impressionable girl or boy, or the parent of one this may be a movie you should skip. There are probably other people who found this to be triggering and you don't want to become one of them.
