God Help the Girl

God help the girlFor the past couple of years, I’ve been trying to stay away from movies that dealt with eating disorders of any kind.
So I was taken aback when I discovered that God Help the Girl’s main character not only suffered from anorexia, but that the entire picture was going to be about her battling the disease, and the various ups and downs that come with it.

Thankfully, the director never exploits the fact, which made this viewing experience quite enjoyable.

Songs are sung, hearts are broken, friendships are made, souls are healed and even more songs are sung, because with performances such as this, why not?
