To The Bone: Triggering, Pandering, or Resonating?

The new movie To The Bone debuts on Netflix today.

Starring Lily Collins and Keanu Reeves, it documents a young 20-year-old’s struggle with anorexia nervosa.

The movie was inspired by Lily’s real struggle with the eating disorder, and she revealed her personal journey with anorexia during the film’s premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this January. Many social media critics have voiced their concerns about the film, claiming that it glorifies eating disorders and the effects that it has on one’s body. Many are even calling for it to be banned from Netflix because it glamorizes the disease and shows methods on how to lose weight unhealthily.

Here at News Macarons, we take this topic seriously. And we believe that every body, every woman, is naturally beautiful. We’ve even interviewed an amazing, inspirational woman about her journey with overcoming this disease and you can read it here!

So we want to know, will you be watching this movie?
Do you think it’s triggering, pandering, or resonating with the current culture?
