It's about a teenage girl going through some what seems like most teenagers go through now and again, right? Well, not really. Beth is in Middle School (Junior High School). Beth is a 4.0 (Straight `A' High Honors Student). Beth is having a bit of a hard time. What Beth's friends and family doesn't know is that Beth is Bulimic. She has been Bulimic for over 3 years. It all started when her parents got divorced. Beth finally tells her friends and family that she does in fact need some medical and physically help. Beth finally seeks help and ends up in an Eating Disorder Inpatient Treatment Program.

14 year old Beth is slim, talented, intelligent, popular - and bulimic. Her parents are divorced and her mother, a child psychologist, is too wrapped up in her work to notice Beth's problems. Her father, meanwhile, is too cusy with his new wife and child. Beth turns to her friends, but when they betray her confidence, she feels totally alone and begins to slip out of control. I don't want to reveal too much about what happens in the film, but it is one of the most realistic filma about eating disorders which I have seen. It is well acted, but could potantially trigger people who have eating problems.

Beth is talented, intelligent, slim - and bulimic. Her mother, a child psychologist, is to wrapped up in her own work to notice her daughter's ever-increasing problems, and her father is too busy with his new wife and family. Beth has no one to turn to, except her friends, and when hey leave her feeling betrayed, she feels even more alone as her eating disorder quickly spirals out of control. I felt this was a well-acted film which accurately portrayed a young girl's struggles. However, those who have eating disorders themselves may find it potentially triggering.

There are not many films based on eating disorders so any that portray an honest reflection are a welcome addition. This one is certainly that and for a relatively small budget film it is well made and acted.

It basically tells the story of Beth who is a star student living with her divorced mother, but being in regular contact with her father as well. On the surface it seems they all have a loving respectful relationship in which there seems to be considerable communication and praise for Beth. However unknown to the parents this praise seems to be causing more and more pressure for Beth. The fact that her mother is also a psychiatrists is maybe a little far fetched and it would have made it more interesting if she were to have had a more 'common' job. However as it stands, despite her insight, her mother misses the signs that her daughter is suffering from Bulimia, in fact praising her on her looks when in my opinion she frankly looks ghaunt and pasty. When the truth eventually comes out, obviously the mother is full of remorse at her failings but the film and the main character Beth do well at explaining that as with many eating disorders a lot of it is about 'control' and that no one apart from the patient themselves can take it away from them. It had a somewhat sudden ending and I personally would have liked to have seen a bit more about the help Beth received once she allowed herself to be helped in the treatment centre.
I would certainly recommend this film to anyone who is interested or who has had any dealings with this disorder.

This film is well worth a watch for people interested in the traumas of growing up and finding your identity and the issues around eating disorders ,it is not overdramatic ,well acted and does not gloss over the issues .

This is one of the most realistic films I have seen that deal with the disease of Bulimia Nervosa. I was diagnosed with the disease at 18 and suffered with it for four years from the age of 16-20. Alison Lohman is a very good actress, I had this on vhs and am glad it's on dvd. It is very realistic in the fact that her family does not spot it, this is actually quite typical as most parents are very busy, mine went to work at 8am and I often would not see them until 7pm. Beth's mums reaction is very true of how parents react when you tell them about your illness, they shout at you and tell you to stop because they do not understand the illness and are freighted for your health. They then drag you in front of doctors in the hope that you'll be cured and you haven't damaged your body. Beth's reaction is spot on, as she feels hurt, angry and betrayed, you cling to your illness, it is almost comforting to you because it is your security blanket and some one challenging you and tying to take it away makes you panic. Everyone who made this film made it well. I have an irregular heartbeat as a result of bulimia as it puts a lot of strain on your heart and I like that this film does not glamourize it, it shows it all in detail, thought provoking. I also recommend the film Kate's secret from 1986, I wish there was a more up to date Bulimia film as this one was made 13 years ago now.
