Eating disorders are about addiction – be it addiction to starvation or to food. It’s an addiction affecting more than 15 million people in North America today. Seven years ago, Felicia, weighing 86 lbs., lay in a hospital bed in Rome with tubes in her arms. They told her she was dying of anorexia. Sixteen years ago, Leslie was bulimic. Food and the toilet were her best friends. While clutching a bottle of pills, she thought suicide was her only escape. These two filmmakers recovered. But sadly, they are among the few that do. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any other psychological disease. It was through perseverance and determination they are alive to tell their stories today.

We completely understand your frustration. When we license rights to a film we try our hardest to negotiate worldwide availability; sometimes we’re successful, other times we’re not. We constantly strive to make our viewing experience a satisfying one to our customers worldwide, and make every effort to do so in each film we license. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you, and hope you will continue to enjoy all of our worldwide-available content – including all of our original programming.
