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

Amazing Must-See Film
16 August 2008 | by (San Jose, CA) – See all my reviews

This was a truly amazing film, and one everyone should see - whether you are fit, fat or in-between. It brings up a lot of interesting subjects and surprised me in that early on it is made clear that this is not a movie about making overweight women feel proud of themselves. It also doesn't really answer any questions about weight issues today - what it does is make you think: about how you view yourself and how you view other people, and this includes the overweight as well as the underweight. And yet still it was about so much more. I had the pleasure of meeting cast and crew at Cinequest in San Jose and this was one of my favorite films of the festival.
