Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center, The Elisa Project and film director Marlee Roberts are hosting a free one-night-only screening of the compelling drama titled Little Miss Perfect, 6 p.m. - 9 p.m., Thursday, April 27, 2017 at the Studio Movie Grill, 11170 N. Central Expy in Dallas.
The award-winning feature film chronicles the life of Belle, a 14-year-old overly-ambitious straight-A freshman. As class president, Belle seems to have it all together, but as her family troubles and daily social academic pressures grow, she seeks a way to control her chaotic world. In the film, Belle is triggered by a blog promoting anorexia and other eating disorders and she drops to an unhealthy weight. Belle utilizes weight measurement as a means to regain a sense of self control.
The event, open to the public, offers complimentary hors d'oeuvres and refreshments. Kirsten Haglund, Miss America 2008, national eating disorders awareness advocate and community relations specialist for Timberline Knolls, will emcee the event.
Following the screening, Haglund will lead an interactive panel discussion with the film’s director and Cindy Cole, LMFT, LPC, Director of Primary and Family Therapy at Timberline Knolls. Also on the panel will be Andy McGarrahan, PhD, Clinical Psychologist, Children's Medical Center Dallas.
