Reviews & Awards

"A poignant, truly unique depiction of what I really feels like to be a teen" -Huffington Post "Layered and calculated" -Cinema Crazed "Timely and important" - Movie Sleuth "Handles extremely delicate subject matter with careful precision" - Broadway World "Elegantly delivers a memorable portrait of that formative age" - Huffington Post "Little Miss Perfect... certainly does convey a message of hope. Growing up is a tricky thing to navigate, especially when social, academic and family pressures are all added into the mix. That, coupled with today's social media, where you can measure your popularity by the number of likes a photo gets on Instagram, makes for a dangerous cocktail of insecurity, self-doubt, and anonymity" - Broadway World "Uses the topic of eating disorders to address broader themes of alienation, disconnection from your family, and the struggle of reaching for academic perfect" -Movie Sleuth "One can notice how delicately crafted each scene was prepared in order to capture the exact tone of the performance needed to satisfy the audience of what they kept asking themselves 'How far is Belle going to go?' or 'How does this happen to a girl like her?'" - The Odyssey "It was comforting to see many of my own experiences reflected in another's life - this provided that 'me, too!' validation and connection that is an antidote to the intrinsic isolation of the disorder" - Annie Robinson, EDRS (Eating Disorder Recovery Specialists) "'Little Miss Perfect' is an intimate look at an exemplary student's descent into anorexia as a way to feel in control of her life while also being a cautionary tale about the dangers of leaving teenagers unsupervised and about hte influence online strangers can have on one person" - Cinema Crazed "I am a survivor of an eating disorder - of anorexia, which I struggled with as a young ballet dancer so I completely resonated with everything that this film says. You did it so responsibly. Thank you so much. It's gonna save lives" - Kirsten Haglund (Miss America 2008)
