17-year-old Ellie (intense newcomer Darcy Miller) is living with a secret she dares not intone. Instead, she wanders alienated through suburban oblivion, doing anything she can do to hurt her body. Why? The punchline will sicken you. An incredible short from a brave new voice, reminiscent of Douglas Buck’s work circa Cutting Moments, Ellie is a powerful, upsetting film, and the perfect opener for a Jack Ketchum adaptation.
