Great watch
19 April 2016 | by kyliem11See all my reviews

Katja is a champion ice skater, she has proud parents and a younger sister, who is somewhat jealous and envious that her older sibling receives so much attention. Stella, very well played by Rebecka Josephson, discovers that Katja has an eating disorder. She wants to tell her parents, but is blackmailed into secrecy by her sister.

This movie is touching and moving, tackling a difficult subject and showing what effect such illnesses have on the immediate family as well as the sufferer herself. The two sisters gel perfectly together and the scenes where they are laughing are so believable you could think they are actually sisters in real life. It's a great watch, so give it a look, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
