Not Indicative of what an Eating Disorder is.
Now, this is purely my opinion and if you disagree all the power to you. However, I have struggled with anorexia for most of my life, since I was seven in fact. I was lucky enough to never end up in a clinic, but I do know what they are like. This whole "we won't force you to eat or do room searches" just isn't accurate. If you do get to the point where you have to do inpatient, it's nothing like this. You can expect to sit with others and finish your food in a certain amount of time, and you have to (or say hello to the tube or soylent). You can expect room searches for things such as vomit stashes, diet pills, razors, and just about anything else. Forget trying to secretly burn calories because they will literally sit you down and have some one watch you to make sure you aren't so much as tapping a finger.

On the other hand I think this movie did it's best and I appreciate all the actors and directors hard work. However I really don't think this portrays what living with an eating disorder is like. The control aspect they definitely nailed, how family members handle disorders and inpatient treatment I feel was gravely off. Of course I only have my experience and those that have been willing to share theirs with me.

Mom of an adult child battling anorexia nervosa
I've been struggling to get through this film as I can see my daughter's pain. But the scene where the mom is bottle feeding her grown daughter is too much! My child never wanted that as a newborn. I had to feed her and lay her in a bouncy seat. My love as a mom was never the thing missing. My daughter still calls me an awesome, loving mother and yet she feels such pain that I can't help her with. I can't recommend this movie to my child or people that love and support her and believe me - I'd love to be able to show family something that helps them not see my daughter as a problem but with a hurt she can't explain. When my daughter spent a month in the hospital for re-feeding and therapy, I was the one to be there, spend the night with her. It wasn't other family or friends

way beyond unrealistic
Anorexics don't act the way any of those characters acted. And an eating disorder clinic or residential home are so strict. You will have to sit down and eat. And the only love you get is tough love. And that stereotypical British guy is just beyond cringe worthy. Its as if a dumb teen made it.

I was pulled into this
I am male, fat and old, yet I understood this movie. Not wanting to eat never made sense to me. Seems like the simplest problem to solve, I mean I eat pretty much non-stop and the idea of not wanting to eat is not easy to relate to for me. But I empathized with these characters. They weren't caricatures, and they weren't dumbed down. There was no pat ending, but that reflects the reality of anorexia in real-life.

I was especially entranced with Lily Collins and Alex Sharp. Both seemed like wise old adults in many ways until they would show images of their gaunt bodies and they are nothing but children.

I know a movie like this can only give a glimpse it this problem, but seeing humans I could relate to go through these problems made it more real than reading an article or a book.

I highly recommend this movie.

Highly Recommend This Movie.
I loved this movie. It showed how difficult it is for someone battling an addiction, with or without a support team. Ellen, although she felt alone, she honestly was stronger than she gave herself credit for being. I got a little concerned at the end, I thought she died when she and the boy were talking. I would recommend this movie to anyone.

Mediocre
Even before it was released to general audiences the think pieces started coming out about Marti Noxon's directorial debut To the Bone. So many think pieces argued over whether the movie had a right to exist and the potential triggers it might have for anyone currently suffering through an eating disorder (and warning, despite Noxon's claim that she was careful not to include anything that might trigger someone with an eating disorder the film does have a few moments that feel gratuitous).

Unfortunately, on every level, it's just not a very good film. Lily Collins plays Ellen, a 20 year old wise-cracking artist with a dark sense of humour who happens to be anorexic. We first meet her as she is coming out of her latest inpatient program weighing even less than she did when she came in. Appalled, Ellen's stepmother pulls some strings and manages to get her to see Dr. Beckham whose unconventional methods are supposed to cure Ellen. He insists on yet another inpatient program which Ellen initially tries to resist, only to succumb when her younger sister pleads with her to go.

The problem is this movie isn't as interesting as it thinks it is. Anorexia is a serious subject worthy of study in fiction and in film, but even though writer/director Noxon and star Lily Collins are both in recovery from the disease their approach feels as clichéd as your average TV movie. Everything from the way that Ellen wears layered dark clothes and makes sarcastic "witty" comments that are supposed to show how great she is and wise beyond her years, to the fact that Beckham's unconventional methods seem to be the pretty conventional method of showing off things of beauty, engaging in therapy and not talking down to his patient are incredibly cringe worthy. The frustrating thing is that there are some interesting moments in the film, like how the supposedly happy go lucky model recovery patient Luke turns out to have a bit of a dark side, but even this is barely covered.

Collins is great and rises far above the material, but it's unfortunate that this passion project, which does take a couple of interesting turns, seems more committed to staying with the paint by numbers typical approach than in offering us anything truly unusual.

The old same thing
The story is good, makes you cry if you are an emotional person (like me) and shows to you a reality that most of us ignore. The problem is in the execution of the scenes, I don't know but it's like others movies about health problems, nothing new or that really shows what is the problem and why it occurs. It's boring and people will watch and forget 'cause doesn't aggregate something to them.

Made me understand more
This movie gave me a clear image of what anorexia is. Now, if I will want to help or I will met a person suffering from anorexia, I will defiantly don't tell her to eat, or tell her about how good food is. It leads to nothing.

The text is well written, from the beginning, there were some good quotes.

Everybody performance was grate, especially Lily Collins's one. It's a good movie, and I don't regret watching this, judge is simple, understand is more complicated.

Anyway, I expected a better ending... :)

A believable tale of a complex disease
The story follows a young artist named Ellen (Lily Collins) and her longstanding battle with anorexia. Her dysfunctional family dynamics lead her to live in a group home led by an unconventional young doctor (Keanu Reeves). The people she meets - including a quirky love interest - could be the final push she needs to accept recovering. 

The film came under a lot of heat during its release with critics claiming that it glamorised eating disorders towards a young, impressionable audience.  Casting Lily Collins as our protagonist could obviously have its repercussions, she is an unquestionable beauty with her high cheekbones and perfectly sculpted brows serving as distractions from her wilted and bruised frame in the film. The rest of the cast is distracting too - each coated with their own quirks and endearments, it's easy to forget that this is really just a house full of sick, dying young people who are suffering from a harrowing habit of self-deprivation.

But I believe Noxon had good intentions at heart when she created To The Bone, considering it was based on her own story of recovery. The details of Collins character are impeccable, from the bruises on her spine to her ability to recite calorie numbers by heart. Just like any film based on a controversial subject, audiences will pick and choose what they deem appropriate and that seems to be the case here. 

Ellen's life-is-actually-good epiphany is so closely entangled with her eating disorder that I can understand the critics perspective. Ellen shows all the common characteristics of overly skinny celebrities or fashion icons; oversized sunglasses, black clothes, kohl eyeliner, smoking cigarettes... For young audiences, this kind of romanticism sugar coats the realities of what really happens to the body during starvation - losing your hair, susceptibility to the cold and becoming infertile. 

There's no denying that it has some flaws. It's weirdly indulgent at times (a group dance scene in the rain, seriously?) and I still find it slightly jarring to hear Tumblr actually said aloud. Also don't even get me started on the teepee scene (watch and you'll know what I mean).  But even then, it still wasn't as bad as I was expecting. 

I personally find the criticism a bit overdone. The argument that watching To The Bone would trigger a relapse for recoverers is a tricky one. A quick look at IMDb for 'anorexia films' and 114 titles appear. Its clear audiences have no shortage of disordered eating films to pick from (BINGE by Angela Gulner is a recent favourite of mine). Therefore, this film is inherently no worse than any other film that portrays and arguably glamorizes a disease. With the plethora of gory and dark material on the internet, all a sufferer would need to do is perform a quick Google search to find a muse just like Ellen. 

Claiming media has such a direct and dramatic effect disregards the complexities of such a disease. It's the same old song and dance from video games right? Not everyone who plays violent video games shows violent behaviour, some do certainly, but it probably is more of a sign of their own susceptibility to violent behaviour than anything else. 

In summary, To The Bone is far more watchable than its critics would let you believe. It's incredibly funny at times, dry, harrowing and important to get this kind of conversation going. Collins did a fantastic job fully immersing herself into this role and let's face it, it's nice to know Keanu Reeves is still around. You can be the judge for yourself.

The difficulties of overcoming eating disorders.
My wife and I watched this as a Netflix streaming movie. It is said to based on real people and real events with some characters composited and some dramatic parts fictionalized. Presumably it fairly accurately reflects what those suffering go through.

Why "suffering"? There is a range of body weights, a quite large range, within which a person can live a normally healthy life. On the low end when a person with anorexia or bulimia gets so thin the body starts to metabolize muscle to stay alive, and eventually consuming vital organs. Then you die.

Lily Collins, mid-20s, is 20-yr-old Ellen. She is from a dysfunctional family, when she was younger her mom left to take up with another woman, her dad remarried but seems rarely present. And step mom is a "piece of work" when it comes to being a good parent.

So perhaps because of all this, or for reasons less related, she has become anorexic. She abhors eating, maybe nibbles a bit, might chew food then spit it out, and keeps losing weight. In desperation her family gets her into a group home for eating disorders under the care of a Psychiatrist who has a glowing reputation for helping those out.

That doctor is Keanu Reeves as Dr. William Beckham. He practices a tough love approach, assuring Ellen that nothing but her own stubbornness is holding her back.

It is a hard movie to watch at times, and in the middle things often move a bit slowly. But Lily Collins is excellent and absolutely convincing in the role. She doesn't have a breakthrough until a dream.
