Painfully realistic
7 January 2018 | by Lugo1989See all my reviews

My Skinny Sister bravely tackles a very serious mental disease that is more and more common in our society nowadays. The film does not explain the disease itself, where, when and how it starts but merely focuses on what life is like when a close family member gets severly affected by it and that is the painfully realistic part. Nothing is held back and strong performances from the entire cast might be quite painful or sad to watch for everyone who are all too familiar with eating disorders. We know that the pressures from the media and society are particularly harsh on girls and young women since we live in a youth and beauty obsessed culture. What parents and siblings go through is extremely difficult due to the fact that it is a very challenging disease, it is unfortunately still a taboo, it may take years to recover from it and even then it may only be dormant and come back again someday.

The film is very well made and if you get a chance to see it, do not miss it. Eating disorder is a topic that people should know more about in order to be able to help someone who is dealing with it in a better and more prepared way.
