Storyline

The Hunter family is dominated by endless, extreme dieting, due to mother's frustration over a fat-making upbringing by her parents. One daughter rebels to have a life as a nurse, but feels guilty. Then her perfect-considered sister, a workaholic law student, has to be interned for an eating disorder. After mother resists therapy, demanding her release home, a fatal incident occurs and the parents' marriage is wrecked. The surviving sister is consumed by guilty feelings, like the mother, and breaks up her relationship with a young doctor at the clinic, yet lets her grandfather set up dates with his buddy's grandson Charlie, a lawyer.

Only if your hungry for a Lifetime movie...
16 January 2003 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

If you're like me, you love cheesy Lifetime movies. Well, then this is for you. Hunger Point is the story of a girl who checks herself into rehab for anorexia and how she came to be that way. As a child, her mother would encourage her two daughters to be as thin as possible. The story focuses more on the girl's older sister, who is between jobs and living with her parents during a very stressful time. It definitely follows the old Lifetime plot, but it works if you aren't expecting much. Despite the serious subject matter, I found it pretty campy, but entertaining enough. A plus (or minus for some) is the horrible hairdo Barb Hershey sports all through the movie. If you're ever bored and it's rerunning, I'd watch it just for the cheese factor.
