Raw and Disturbing - Review of Thinspiration
While browsing Netflix this evening, looking for a movie to watch, I noticed the new movie Thinspiration (2014) about anorexia and I thought I'd give it a shot.

Thinspiration starts out as expected with all the usual elements and characters for a TV-movie about a series topic. However, at some point I began to notice something quite different about this movie - it was scaring me. The characters felt more and more real; the main theme made me think more and more; and the way the movie portrayed the physiological development of the main character was done in way both fitting and surprisingly effective.

This is a movie both relevant and powerful. It is not amazing, but it does a great job at telling its story in a raw and honest way that ended up making me both think and feel. A good and unfortunately relevant movie.
