Quotes

Hannah: I believe in control, the only force mighty enough to bring order to the chaos that is my life. I believe in perfection. I believe in salvation by trying just a bit harder than I did yesterday. I believe in a holy black and white world, the losing of weight, the recrimination of sins, the abnegation of the body and a life ever fasting. I'd rather die than be fat.

It was the True of the disorder disease
8 October 2014 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

It seem like normal movie, but it actually shows you how true it can be if you keep going and hide it from anyone and everyone. your actions will become deadlier as you stop doing what you need to do.

This movie was as good as what it shows, and it showed. The acting was good and the movie was moving and fast paced. It was fun to watch and gave us a sight of the small things and big thing that can happen.

The movies focus on the dancer called Anna and her brother who is in a wrestler league competition. food is necessary for both of them, and we start to see some secrets that are left behind can cause very dangerous actions.

6/10
