Description

Sanna Lenken’s insightful debut feature not only shines a light on the psychological entanglement of eating disorders, but also casts a wide and tender net over sisterly love (and hate) and the painful judgments pushed on girls. Stella is an awkward twelve-year-old who idolizes her svelte, popular, figure-skating older sister Katja. But underneath Katja’s perfection is a dark secret, and Stella must find a way to help her sister without betraying her. My Skinny Sister confronts the very dangerous landscape of girlhood, body image and growing under the guise of society’s distorted expectations.
