An interesting movie depicting a significant issue in today's world. Susan May Pratt and Barbara Hershey give remarkable performances.

Nice lifetime movie. This movie is about two sisters who have to worry about being thin all the time because their mother is obsessed with weight and being skinny.

Barbara Hershey gives a superb performance. And Christina Hendricks as Frannie and Susan May Pratt as Shelly do not disappoint either. B-
