Summary
"In 9th grade I was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa. I have little memory of it." Thus begins the filmmaker's story of her ten year struggle with the disorder. The onset was rather sudden. She was told by a modelling agency that she should lose fifteen pounds. It was her first experience of "not being good enough." This compelling film documents Laura's descent from a healthy, attractive teenager into one starving herself to the verge of death, obsessed with exercise, unable to sleep, solitary and secretive. It follows her story from the point of view of her parents and best friend. Anti depressants and psychiatry provided the impetus to begin the assent to normality. Laura concludes, " No good comes from silence. Living with an eating disorder is a trauma; surviving it is a triumph!" A closed captioned version is available. Please specify when ordering
