MY SKINNY SISTER

RETURN
Sanna Lenken's feature debut is a striking drama that tackles the topic of eating disorders with a refreshing subtlety and uniqueness as the narrative unfolds not through the victim of the disease, but through the eyes of her younger sister. The awkward and precocious Stella (Rebecka Josephson) - who's on the cusp of adolescence and idolises her older sister, competitive ice skater Katja (Amy Deasismont) - is the first to notice when Katja starts starving herself in her quest for excellence. With outstanding performances, Lenken's debut is a nuanced and naturalistic portrayal of a difficult but common scenario, unusually exploring the far-reaching emotional impact of eating disorders for those who depend on, and look up to, their sufferers. ✮✮✮✮ "Rebecka Josephson gives us one of the most captivating young performances since Abigail Breslin in Little Miss Sunshine" Trevor Johnston, Time Out
