The 2003 film, Hunger Point, tells the story of Shelly Hunter?a 23 year old struggling with anorexia?through the narration of her older sister, Frannie. While Shelly's presentation of anorexia is typical and conforms to the DSM-IV-TR criteria for a diagnosis of anorexia nervosa, the film itself could be triggering for many viewers in that much of the material presented could be misused in an unhealthy way. This paper analyzes Shelly's presentation of anorexia while considering her behavioral, cognitive, and emotional symptoms; furthermore, this paper also includes a critique of Shelly's treatment.
