Movie of the Day: Shapeless (2021) by Samantha Aldana

Ivy is a struggling singer performing with her band at dive bars and jazz clubs around New Orleans. Though she is determined to work as hard as possible, there are things outside her control conspiring to prevent her from achieving any real level of success. One of those things is the fact that she is slowly turning into a monster. Shapeless is an allegory for the all-encompassing hold disordered eating can have on a person’s life. Ivy’s bulimia consumes her, depicted as an addiction that feeds her gruesome transformation. She is unable to balance her musical goals with her necessary day job and her constant sense of shame around food. The shame grows and takes on an increasingly large portion of her concentration. After learning that the bulimia is having a major and likely irreversible effect on her voice, Ivy falls into a tailspin, accelerating the monstrous mutations.
