I am thrilled to see this all come to fruition in the coming weeks!"

Real Big Hits' Vice President of Acquisitions Scott Kamins said "LITLE MISS PERFECT struck me as a powerfully honest portrait of the havoc eating disorders can have on teenagers, especially in the face of dealing with all the pressure, uncertainty, and insecurity of the modern high school experience. There is a raw emotional power and natural aspect to Marlee Roberts' filmmaking that inspired me to acquire this film and play an important part in helping to spread awareness regarding an issue that is profoundly misunderstood and stigmatized in society. I am extremely proud of this film and the wonderful talent that brought Marlee's vision to life."

  1. Little Miss Perfect is a cautionary tale about the dangers of unattended teens, anorexia, and peer pressure. The film shows its writer/director’s passion for it and that she put a lot in the script and direction. First-timer lead Karlee Roberts shows a lot of potential and an ability to portray difficult situation that should take her far.
