The producer - Karina Miller - isn't she Keanu's sister? or am I mixing up information?

Yes, but - anyone else have concerns about a "dark anorexia comedy" ? There's something - anything - "funny" about anorexia? Director says she's a "survivor" but I'm not sure that's relevant.

It depends on how it's done and what the target of the humour is - such that if the director is a survivor, there's a better chance that the jokes won't be at the expense of anorexics themselves.

I think that a comedy with a serious background can have more impact than a movie that feels like a lecture or a sermon

wow, then Keanu has not only a multinational background by his parents but a multinational family by his sisters too. What a mix :-)

As someone who has a whacked auto-immune disorder [CFIDS/FM maybe MS gotta get the test] and who has a 'collection' of sick moms as kids seem to stick together.... any and all chronic illnesses can be laughed at

In fact that's the only way they can't OWN you. By laughing at it, it releases endorphins in the brain too which can ease pain and lift mood. Sometimes the best way to get others to understand an illness is through laughter.

My illness is nothing compared to a friend with neurofibromatosis. Who is getting her miracle surgeries this week. We joke too. If you saw her tumors you'd not find them funny; cause they're not. But we still find ways to laugh. It's either that or go insane.

Yes, yes yes! People really gain a better understanding of a subject, any subject it seems through comedy. Health problems, chronic and poorly understood? Poor outcomes etc people behave in very distinct black and white ways towards the chronically ill.

Humor is also my favorite way of coping with a chronic illness too. Not just for those who don't understand. It makes it highly relate-able.

All chronic illnesses share certain similarities despite being very different. Neuropathy is felt by those with a jacked up spine just as much as it is for a diabetic. No doubt there is a painful rebound effect in anorexia that involves neuropathy pain too.

Yeah, upon reflection, this CAN be a good thing - it can bring awareness to a spectrum of disorders that is largely ignored if not outright mocked by the culture - and if the film itself mocks that culture which promotes insane body image for women, that can only be good.

I don't believe I know any women for whom body image isn't at least a worry - the culture gives the "options" of conforming, rebelling or my personal choice - to not give a damn and to eat whatever the heck I like, which isn't always very healthy.

Good comments, everyone! Thanks!

Not a big production but touches a health problem.
