The Best Movies About Eating Disorders

List Criteria: Movies about eating disorders and body image issues.

News of an amazing singer like Karen Carpenter tragically dying, the struggles that athletes, dancers, and gymnastics have over being more thin, people who struggle with body image, and the psychological issues that haunt people who have severe food issues – these are all things that might cross your mind when thinking about eating disorders. These issues are unfortunately prevalent enough in today's society that many films have been made about the subject.

Other films are fictional stories, but no less impactful.
