Today, Netflix has released the first still from their upcoming film To The Bone, a dramedy about one girl’s battle with anorexia, starring Lily Collins. The image is frightening in it’s depiction of a dangerously thin Collins standing on what appears to be a scale, a simultaneously lifeless and alarmed expression scrawled across her face.
To The Bone is an unconventional film about eating disorders that subverts expectation, largely thank to a cast of heavyweights that put on the charm even in the context of such a heavy subject. Keanu Reeves, Carrie Preston, and Lili Taylor are among the acting legends rounding out the cast.
Perhaps most exciting is who Netflix has tapped to direct the project: TV veteran and Emmy nominee Marti Noxon, whose previous credits include such smashes as the addictive “UnReal,” the impossibly charming “Glee,” and the eternally classic “Buffy The Vampire Slayer.”
The film, out later this summer, is just one in a series of projects being distributed exclusively through Netflix. Most notably in recent weeks, the streaming service has once again proven its relevancy with the hit Selena Gomez-produced drama “13 Reasons Why,” currently Netflix’s most talked-about show on social media.
