This movie talks about how women are influenced by all the images shown to them about what a perfect woman is, how she has to be tall and slim and athletic instead of celebrating all the diversity of shapes and sizes and celebrating the bodies we are in. Probably for me the saddest part was when she asks women on the street to describe their bodies and they all reply with negative labels to describe themselves. It was also interesting when she speaks to the editor of Australian Cosmopolitan magazine who says when they first wanted to put a plus size lingerie layout in the magazine, make up artists, designers and the photographer did not want their names mentioned in the article.
I enjoyed it - Taryn is a lovely Aussie lady and her charm makes it very watchable. 4/5.
