NOTES: A form of slow suicide: that is what eating disorders are. This video is filmed at the Renfrew Center of South Florida, this program closely follows four women, ages 15 to 30, into the weighing room, group and individual therapy sessions, the bedroom, and even the bathroom when the film's subjects relapse and purge. It also examines the pervasiveness of restrictive eating behaviors as well as the failure of the health insurance industry to address its client's needs, while never shifting focus from the women themselves. An intimate and devastating portrait of self-loathing, denial, and depression. A brief status report on the patients' uneven experiences after being discharged concludes the program.
