A queer slice-of-life drama about dating and eating.

If HBO’S Girls and Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan got together for a few too many margaritas, they’d be Meat & Bone by the end of the night. The story, which takes place in Toronto and originally appeared as a popular webcomic, focuses on the lives of three roommates and their interpersonal struggles.

While one roommate is slowly wrestling with severe body image issues, another is trying to figure out how to navigate her new polyamorous relationships—without hurting any of her partners. Meanwhile, the third roommate practically moves into the gym, where’s she’s quietly working through her own problems and those of her friends. In Meat & Bone, Verhoeven winds these threads into an unflinching, beautifully illustrated exploration of how women learn to define themselves in the modern world.
