Netflix brought a very important, yet confronting issue to the forefront when they released the series 13 Reasons Why.

The world had mixed reactions to the show, but there is no denying that it raised awareness around a taboo topic and has helped to spur more conversation around mental health.

Now, Netflix has decided to tackle another important issue in a new film called To The Bone.

Lily Collins leads the film about a young girl who is battling anorexia.

The film also features Keanu Reeves and is a directorial debut for Marti Noxon, and has been helmed for trying to depict the issue in an authentic way.


The synopsis reads, "Ellen is an unruly, 20-year-old young woman with anorexia nervosa who spent the better part of her teenage years being shepherded through various recovery programs, only to find herself several pounds lighter every time. 

"Determined to find a solution, her dysfunctional family agrees to send her to a group home for youths, which is led by a non-traditional doctor."

To The Bone will be released on Netflix on July 14.
