Lily Collins Stars in Official Trailer for Anorexia Drama 'To the Bone'

"What's going on with you?" Netflix has released the first official trailer for a film titled To the Bone, an anorexia drama that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to mostly positive reviews. To the Bone is the directorial debut of producer/writer Marti Noxon, and tells a very real story of a young woman struggling with anorexia, or the inability to eat and an intense obsession with looking thin. Lily Collins stars, giving a remarkable (and almost unbelievable because of how scary thin she is) performance as Ellen. The full cast includes Keanu Reeves, Alex Sharp, Kathryn Prescott, Liana Liberato, Alanna Ubach, Carrie Preston, and Ciara Bravo. I caught this at Sundance and it's an endearing, heartfelt film worth your time.
Here's the first official trailer for Marti Noxon's To the Bone, direct from Netflix's YouTube:
A young anorexic woman (Lily Collins) reluctantly enters an unconventional treatment program, where she bonds with other residents struggling with eating disorders. To the Bone is both written and directed by veteran producer/writer Marti Noxon, making her feature directorial debut after work on TV shows including "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Point Pleasant", "Mad Men", "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce", and "UnREAL". This film first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year in competition. Netflix will release Noxon's To the Bone streaming exclusively starting July 14th this summer. Who's interested?
Hard to watch these body transformations...it can't be healthy to do that to your body...

Sure its not. Thats why anorexia is a disease. Even just for a movie and a short time its not healthy.

One needs to admire to Keanu Reeves and his choice of characters he plays. He might be the best reason to watch this ...

This is the first movie I think I have ever seen that may actually ACCURATELY capture what having anorexia is like. And is also treating it like a disease, not a fashion choice. Looks great, and hits WAY close to home for those of us with experiences relating to anorexia/bulemia.

Indeed. I think that was the point, that was the intention of the filmmaker, to show it in this way and to make a realistic film.

Lily Collins and Keanu Reeves? No-brainer!

Looks good, although I hate to give any credit to Noxon, who greatly diminished Buffy in the last seasons. IMHO, of course.

I have to hand it to Netflix. They're really trying to put some thought provoking indie-type films out there. Yeah, they got other stuff too, but I'm surprised by what they're producing. I'll definitely watch this.

You know, it's nice to see Keanu not kill everybody over a dead puppy, these days... quite refreshing, actually.
