This excellent film, as mentioned by other review, is not for everyone. If you want to see an easy, happy-ending movie, you are up to a disappointment. The pain the characters portray through out the film grabs you and makes you empathize. It also teaches you that you must learn how to be flexible, to maintain your feet on the ground and stay away from deceit, keeping communication between friends and family a must. I also feel that this movie could happen anywhere in the world, since eating disorders are a problem human kind has been making its own brand from some time now. The motives and background that leads to them is so varied..... but so terribly common.... Finally, the photography and direction is amazing. When you finish watching this movie you certainly don't walk away feeling light-hearted, but you definitely leave knowing you just learned something.
