There was one in The Guardian?I mean I'll probably watch it, but christ, what a tired narrative. White woman develops ED to gain some element of control, goes to therapy, overcomes obstacles, goes home to succeed with people who surround her and love her. I was reading an article the other day on how it's damaging to only ever paint eating disorders in this light, I'll post it if I find it again.
I'm still waiting for a high-quality production on eating disorders. Or at least something a little less formulaic. It's curious that commercial work dealing with anorexia remains so poorly nuanced; in a society as morbidly fascinated with the illness as ours, I would have thought we'd have something more interesting to show for than that 2000-something Lifetime movie. Maybe I am just ignorant. Or maybe that's what the general audience wants? A rawer portrayal of eating disorders might be too uncomfortable.
