Wow this was so, so good. I... was not prepared for the onslaught of emotions this movie brought me. It's very unexpected to portray Olivia's "ED voice" as Matt- she thinks he's haunting her, but really it's not her brother but the side of her that tells her to starve, to gain control, to be perfect, etc.

It takes a much more internal approach than To the Bone and showcases the neuroses and the intense loneliness and haunting in one's mind as they suffer from an eating disorder. The torture and the defiance of logic, thinking you have it all under control, only to lose everything. Really gripping and the ending shows that confronting that voice is only the beginning of the journey to healing/recovery, that the road ahead may be difficult, but ultimately, there IS hope.
