Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts.
ED lies to you. Some part of Bryan must feel that he deserves this because he just nods.
Maybe Flesh and Bone has warped me, or maybe I’m just feeling warmly toward its particular brand of decadent madness, but Claire ate her own blood again tonight, and I was all for it. Her story has been a twisted one. After dealing with this for my entire adult life, I wish I could say I am cured.

While there were several moments throughout the film that I found irresponsible and misleading, it was its ending, or more specifically, its lack of ending, that was its greatest downfall. Did Paul put that glass in Claire’s shoe to give her the push that she needed? I've watched women try to recover from an eating disorder, and the hard part isn't deciding to change. That’s what you wanted. Meanwhile, Claire stares into space in her dressing room, numb to the buzz of the people around her. The film, starring 28-year-old Lily Collins, who has been open about her own struggles with anorexia and bulimia, tells the story of 20-year-old Ellen, a college drop out whose family dynamics and past trauma appear to stand in the way of her complex road to recovery. He’s quick to apologize, but that’s the last straw for Claire’s knight in shining bottle caps, who stabs Bryan in the chest. Her bones protrude, her clothes are baggy. Even when you see other women praised for their slender frames, and can't avoid photos of thin women in bikinis all over your Instagram feed. It took Claire a long time to get here, and it hasn’t always been a pleasant trip, but every setback and every weird smear of blood on her lips eventually propelled her toward her own emancipation. He can't be sure it was Sleepy John who actually put the bullet in Jessup, but now Teardrop knows he played a big part in setting up the hit, which in this context is enough for the Appalachian justice train to start rolling out of the station. As a person who is very close to someone with anorexia and watching her struggling everyday this ending was perfect. He never gave a name and, hell, I couldn't say for sure the man was ever even all the way awake, but he was sure 'nough good news for you-all when he put this down on Jessup.".

But it also avoids the most uncomfortable truth about eating disorders, and in a sense, the film's one opportunity to be truly realistic. Claire didn’t know her mother.
The story of a woman who starves herself - with none of the 'unappealing' symptoms like binging or purging or laxative use - is so rare that it's incredibly hard to see To The Bone as the earnest portrayal that it claims to be. Her head is in the game now. And it's the same reason so many women suffer from issues with body image and eating.
He took it to heart, sewing bottle caps on Bryan’s old Steelers jacket and wearing it into battle like a suit of armor.
Ellen will always be anorexic however it was how the movie ended to say that she was going to try and she accepted help. The author's writing style is very poetical and works about 80% of the time.

He can’t find the words to tell off Claire’s brother for what he did wrong, so he just apologizes repeatedly for calling him Jim Joe. So who was behind the camera in those home videos telling her to “wave to mommy”? The movie doesn't either.
