    Although slightly cliched, this movie does have its strong points, and can be interesting to a patient audience.

    A tawdry tale of anorexia starring ex-anorexic Tracey Gold. While this is certainly an interesting movie, it suffers from insane and unexplained gaps in its timeline. One scene will end abruptly, and the next will take place weeks later, with no bridging in between. This happens at least a dozen times throughout the film. While this movie has nothing new to offer, Tracey Gold holds things together with her excellent portrayal of a role she was literally (and no disrespect intended) born to play. You could tell she was digging up emtions from her own health ordeal to use in her performance, and the result is a powerful and honest portrayal of a person who has let anorexia take over every aspect of their life. All of the other characters are overacted with an extremely heavy hand, almost to the point of nausea (but what is up with the unspoken sexual tension between Nancy and her brother, played by Mark-Paul Gossellar?).The outcome is predictable and the atmosphere never rises above that of a mid-90s made-for-TV drama.

    Tracey Gold as an anorexic young woman... she plays the role well, makes it very believable.

    Made for TV drama, think I caught it on 5 during the afternoon sometime. I did think it was set in the early 90's what with the dodgy outfits though, and suprise suprise I was right!
