This review is from: Sharing the Secret [DVD] (DVD)
I was totally disgusted with this film. I am currently in recovery from bulimia, and films like this are definitely NOT what I need - it did not even say on the back of the video box that it was about eating disorders, but it was insinuated. I thought the message of the film was going to be a good one - ie the benefits of opening up, but that was far from the case. There was one scene which was a total disgrace - the sufferer was showing her friends how to purge, and explained some of the tricks of the trade. And it's pg12 on top of that - now come on!

Like it or not, some bulimics do tell their friends how to purge, I didn't but I hear it's pretty common. The end of the film is good, beth opens up and her mothers reaction is pretty accurate on how parents react, I know mine took it badly, it ends with beth in hospital trying to get better, what's wrong with that?
