Netflix's "13 Reasons Why" when it comes to triggering vulnerable viewers.

"To the Bone" was written and directed by Marti Noxon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "unREAL") and stars Lily Collins as a young woman with anorexia nervosa. According to the synopsis, her character Ellen "spent the better part of her teenage years being shepherded through various recovery programs, only to find herself several pounds lighter every time. Determined to find a solution, her dysfunctional family agrees to send her to a group home for youths, which is led by a non-traditional doctor."

The film also stars Keanu Reeves as her doctor, Carrie Preston as her stepmother, and Lilly Taylor as her mother.

On one side, fans think this is a great opportunity to address eating disorders and mental illness, taboo topics that don't get a lot of play in well-watched forums, showing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. On the other side, fans are worried that this will further glamorize being skinny, triggering people with eating disorders, and just end up used as "thinspo" -- thin inspiration -- when that's not exactly the objective.

Netflix picked up "To the Bone" after its debut at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. It will be available for streaming on July 14.
