About the Movie
Little Miss Perfect is a feature-length drama that chronicles the life of BELLE (14) an overambitious straight-A freshman. Her newest accomplishment? Class President. Belle seems to have it altogether but as family trouble and daily social academic pressures grow, she seeks a way to control an otherwise chaotic world. Triggered by a blog promoting anorexia and other eating disorders, Belle drops down to an unhealthy weight, a number that wouldn't even make for a good grade. This highly acclaimed and multiple award winning film "handles what is an extremely delicate subject matter with careful precision..."
I had the pleasure of watching this at my town's film festival earlier this month. It's a film that deserves to be seen by many to spread the message and get awareness out there for girls suffering from body image disorders. I already told my mom and some friends about this movie and will tell more!
When I came across this film late last night while surfing iTunes on my apple tv in bed, I thought the trailer looked great and decided to give it a shot and buy it. I was more than pleasantly surprised, this movie is even better than what I thought was a great trailer. This is one of those indie gems that takes you by surprise. The subject matter, although controversial, is handled in a fresh way that mirrors our social media obsessed culture. I'm really happy that I discovered this powerful little film that feels like a real portrait of modern day teenagers dealing with the uncertainty and insecurity of our times. There's an immediacy to this film that reminded me of the first time I saw The Social Network, in many ways this film is the aftermath or a reaction to the facebook culture that we have become on so many levels. If you want some raw emotional power and a film that will make you think and feel at the same time give this a shot, as it's a better movie than 99.9% of the stuff that's out there. It's a film experience that hits the heart and the mind and it made me realize that entering into something with no expectations (or even low expectations) sometimes sets the best stage to witness the unexpected!
Little Miss Perfect is Perfect
Outstanding movie on a really important subject. Must watch.
