VOD News | On 21, Apr 2017
Lily Collins will star in To the Bone, Netflix’s latest original film.
The movie, which was acquired by the streaming service at Sundance earlier this year, follows Ellen, an unruly, 20-year-old anorexic girl who spent the better part of her teenage years being shepherded through various recovery programs, only to find herself several pounds lighter every time. Determined to find a solution, her dysfunctional family agrees to send her to a group home for youths, which is led by a non-traditional doctor. Surprised by the unusual rules—and charmed by her fellow patients—Ellen has to discover for herself how to confront her addiction and attempt self-acceptance, in order to stand a chance against her demons.
The film is the debut feature of TV veteran Marti Noxon, with a cast that includes Keanu Reeves, Carrie Preston, and Lili Taylor.
The film premieres on Netflix worldwide on Friday 14th July. You can see the first image from the film above – or head this way to find out about Netflix’s other Sundance acquisitions.
