Storyline

Lydia is an overweight sales clerk in a trendy home furnishings store, nearing 30. Though she is a member of a Fat Acceptance Group (a movement dedicated to fighting prejudice against overweight people), she is still struggling with complex feelings about her body and its place in the world. Darcy, a recovering-anorexic real estate agent in her mid-20s, is struggling with the same issues from a very different perspective. Her attempt to join the Fat Acceptance Group (since she sees herself as fat) is quickly rejected - but it introduces her to Lydia. Lydia is initially wary of Darcy's efforts to become friends, but Darcy's hunger for emotional contact breaks through the wall of apparent differences and they begin an unexpected friendship. At the same time Lydia gets involved in a sexual relationship with Bob, an overweight man who joins her in walking for exercise early mornings at Venice beach. Stirred emotionally by this new romance and by her conflict with the Fat Acceptance Group,... Written by Anonymous

disFOCUSED!
28 October 2008 | by (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the most controversial movie, I saw in last few years. I am bit rounded too, as my wife is. This is the only movie we watched for double its time, since all the time we were pausing it to discuss it (so consider it really worths watching!). For everybody in the group of rounded or anorexic people, this would be interesting to see. I will not reveal details of the movie, in short I will mention it is about an overweight and an anorexic women, trying to face and solve their problems. The movie is really well made, by script and performance. There are just two weak spots.

First, the script itself. The movie tries to tell that we should accept the way we are. Well - totally wrong! We should accept it just to a certain level. Then whatever we dislike, we can change. Yes - we can and must change ourselves - strive for perfection, because we could never be perfect, but in the pursuit of perfection is where we get better and learn to fight. So overweight and anorexic people should not satisfy and stay the way they are and ask the world to accept them - they should fight to change instead and there is where the world would accept them! I don't know about anorexic people, but fat people could do diets and same time go to gym/parks for workouts. The main character complains about gyms and this is totally wrong. (believe me as overweight, this is what I do - diets + gym and it works) Second, this movie should change its title from "disFigured" to "disFOCUSED!". This is the worse shoot movie ever. The camera man really need more practice. First the camera moves too much and then it loses focus with the objects very often. True - for less than a second, but it really pisses me off.

Apart of this, the actors are very cute and it really makes you think about the way you live. The interaction between the main characters - the contrast of the overweight and the anorexic woman is very interesting, so just go see it!
