Netflix has released the first trailer for Marti Noxon’s directorial debut TO THE BONE, which stars Lily Collins as an anorexic girl struggling to accept herself and confront her eating disorder.
Keanu Reeves co-stars as a doctor who leads an unconventional treatment program, and he’s joined by Carrie Preston, Lili Taylor and Liana Liberato.
The film earned positive reviews at Sundance, where critics appreciated Noxon’s nuanced take on what could’ve been Movie of the Week material.
Netflix will release the movie on July 14, and hopefully the streaming service is able to reach young people who are dealing with similar issues. If nothing else, the film should serve as a reminder to audiences that it’s okay to ask for help. After all, we’re all only human.
