Thin: A review

I just watched the documentary Thin today at the HotDocs film festival. The film is about a group of girls who are in eating disorder treatment at Renfrew in Florida, a popular US treatment centre where the whole documentary takes place at. I must say that I was really impressed with the documentary. First of all, Lauren fucking Greenfield directed it - it was her first movie and she captured the lives of ED'd girls on film as amazingly as she captures the filth and fury of North American youth and children consumed by body image through her photography.
