Support the film!
Little Miss Perfect is a 90-minute live-action feature film that follows an overachieving teen, Belle, in her struggle with anorexia as she becomes involved in a secret online pro-eating disorder
Our social mission is to raise awareness of eating disorders, primarily anorexia, and transform how they are perceived by society. By destigmatizing the disorder, those hiding it are encouraged to speak
out and seek recovery.
With the guidance of our Executive Producer, Karl Bardosh, and the assistance of clinical psychologist, Dr. Andrea Vazzana, we plan to make this film both compelling for audiences and truthful to the mental health issues upon which we are shining a light.
