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.
 
Some of the best movies tell the story of a true event that happened in a person’s life, helping to make something difficult to understand more accessible. Many of the movies featured on this list take an honest look at what makes a person truly struggle with an eating disorder, how it affects their family and close friends and how people who struggle with this disorder can overcome it. Other films are fictional stories, but no less impactful.
