Taking Anorexia seriously
23 September 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Anorexia is a serious health condition, far too often used as a cheap joke. "The Right Thing" addressed anorexia compassionately and with all the seriousness such a topic deserves.

The make-up team did a fabulous job with making Adrienne Wilkinson look like she was suffering from the disorder. With dark circles, gaunt cheeks, baggy clothes and stringy hair, she looked the part. Most shows would just cast a small actress and leave it at that, but anorexia has physical signs, and so this helps people understand what to look out for with this disorder.

Though it has the typical 'after school special' to it with everything wrapped up in the end, it is aimed at a younger audience and it is important to teach them that it's better to have your friend be angry with you because you told someone they have a problem, rather than to let the problem continue.
