I had mixed feelings about that scene. Overall though, that scene just made me feel really uncomfortable.

I haven't cried during a movie since being a little child because images on a screen usually don't really get to me emotionally but that scene brought tears to my eyes. I found the feeding part a little weird since it's very ... Unconventional I guess lol but for me it was rather Ellen's desperation that got to me. Like her realizing that she will die if she doesn't eat, but still being unable to eat herself so accepting her mothers offer out of desperation because at heart she doesn't want to die. Idk, I'm shit at interpreting things but those were my thoughts

Yes, I cried and I'm happy I wasn't the only one! My mom passed away about 7 months ago, and she was an incredibly heartwarming and nurturing mom. When Eli called out in desperation to her mom because she realized she didn't actually want to die is when I started to tear up and cried throughout the entirety of the scene. It made me miss the nurturing nature of my own mom, felt a strong urge to be able to cuddle with her again, and mixed with the intimacy of the movie's scene is probably what got to me. It was very well acted so kudos to both of them, since I'm also sure it was an unconventional scene to act out to say the least. Imagine the bloopers if any.. lol..

Same, and I don't recall the last time I even cried.  Sobbing & can't hardly recall the scenes following,

xxxx out of nowhere, sobbing.

I might attribute the feelings in that my mother is very cold & doesn't hug & hates any imitimate contact.

I felt awkward but I know she was also starving and desperately wanted to feel love and care from her mother

I didn't cry and at first i also thought it was cringy but only for like a split second. I'm a mother myself and i know how important it is to really bond with your baby during the first couple hours/days and there's actually so much research about how important it is and how it can contribute to things down the line in terms of emotional stability and stuff in both mother and child. Obviously not as the sole cause but one of many factors definitely.

So while i didn't cry the scene still hit home because i constantly fear that i'm setting my daughter up for all kinds of problems by having disordered eating myself and also not being able to breastfeed her

Yeah I thought it was so weird but I get the longing to be held by a parent or parent figure and treated like a child.

I get that it's a metaphor, but I'd rather die than have my mother feed me like a baby. I am not even joking.

See, I'm on this new diet, well, I don't eat anything. And right before I feel I'm going to faint, I eat a cube of cheese.

I cried.
My mother never neglected me though and gave me attention so my reason isn't because I am desperate for my mothers love, but more like I don't know what I would do without my mom. I have had serious seperation anxiety growing up. I am currently 26. My eating disorder started when I was 12. Still super dependent on my mom. I feel emotionally like a child. So that scene for me portrayed my dependent emotional attachment that I have with my mom and how I am too scared to lose her and how I fee i am emotionally still a child. I think I hide behind my eating disorder a lot because I am embarrassed that at the age I am and I still can't seem to become independent.
Everyon has different reasons for why we hold onto our eating disorders or how it took over us and for me I know it has a lot to do with the fear of becoming an "adult" mentally and emotionally. And I always worry about how others view/think of me to the point I always panic and want to hide in the corner and cry.

As a mother who had post-partum depression that scene struck a chord with me. And as an adult dealing with an abusive mother, it was another reminder that you don't just stop being a mum when your kid reaches 18, like mine seems to think so. Sometimes, your adult children will need you, and as far as I'm concerned I will always be their mum. And never stop loving them.
