Did You Know?


The 28-year-old actress opened up about the moment in an interview with The Edit about the time she was complimented on her weight loss while filming the film. "I was leaving my apartment one day and someone I've known for a long time, my mom's age, said to me, 'Oh, wow, look at you!'" Lily said. "I tried to explain [I had lost weight for a role] and she goes, 'No! I want to know what you're doing, you look great!' I got into the car with my mom and said, "That is why the problem exists."

Scratching the surface of the surface
15 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

I don't really know what this movie wants to be and that is the problem. Romance? Education? Drama? Comedy?

It is trying to go deep but fails miserably. As someone with a long-term eating disorder, I don't think that what they show is real anywhere. And it shouldn't be a fantasy as it is a really serious problem. So anyone with an eating disorder who has not recovered yet may watch this and think: oh well as long as I eat 2 peas at dinner, everything will be peachy. No. It won't. The protagonist doesn't seem to suffer at all, she is making fun of spitting out food or getting laxatives and I don't really see a development in her character at all. Lily Collins lost a lot of weight for nothing. And it is a shame because we would need a great movie about this topic. But this movie is banalizing the problem and it doesn't do any good.
