all girls should see this
27 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

I found the interviews interesting, insightful and meaningful. I enjoyed hearing about these women by which so many of us judge our exteriors. I was not familiar with them from Seventeen Magazine, but I have had concerns about the influence that such publications have on the self-image of young girls. It was refreshing to hear these models comment on what real beauty is and their real priorities in life. I wish this film were shown to all 6th grade girls. It might help them in a small way to navigate the coming years of self-doubt that so many of them struggle with.
