Mental health experts criticise new Netflix film about anorexic girl
To the Bone, starring Lily Collins, could glamourise eating disorders and should come with trigger warning, charities say

To the Bone, which is released next month, tells the story of 20-year-old Ellen, who struggles with anorexia and enters a group recovery home for help. But while its director says the film is intended as “a conversation starter about an issue that is too often clouded by secrecy and misconceptions”, critics say the film risks glamourising and trivialising anorexia.

片花看上去有点肤浅,但我还是支持拿出来公开讨论这种话题。之前 Netflix 出了一套关于青少年自杀的剧,也是很有争议。

搬家之前我住的公寓楼里有个明显是 anorexic 的女人,已经完全看不出年纪,经常可以在健身房或者附近的步行道上看见。很多次想冲上去求她找个好医生治疗一下,因为看着她我自己太难受了。但是也许人家已经在治疗了呢?

Anorexia 和 bulimia 其实死亡率倒不是很高(Karen Carpenter 是个极端例子),但是生活太悲惨了,家人亲友也太痛苦了。
There was nothing to warn anyone about. The world went on, even as it fell apart, changed irrevocably, became something strange and different. --- "Acceptance" in The Southern Reach Trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer
