Documentary centering on the controversial political career of Imelda Marcos, the former first lady of the Philippines whose behind-the-scenes influence of her husband Ferdinand's presidency rocketed her to the global political stage.
Dawn Cottrell (Peterson) seems like a typical sixteen-year-old girl, but she has a very dangerous secret. Unable to express her true feelings, whenever Dawn is upset she grabs a knife and cuts herself.
One of the best documentaries of last year. If you know anyone who has an eating disorder, then this film will give you a clear insight into their behavior, and also into treatment facilities, and why they fail.
I am so against the behavior-based practices of facilities like the one depicted in this movie. They are so about rules and really do not get into the whys. You will leave this film at the end not having any more understanding of why someone would exist on 200 calories a day, than you did in the beginning.
It is no wonder that most go back to their behaviors when they leave. No one addressed the inner demons. It is all "Just Say NO," and we know how that works on the drug problem or keeping teens from having sex.
You can't help feeling sorry for these girls. You know they are destined to continue in their hell.
Thank you, Lauren Greenfield, for introducing us to them.
