I watched this with the intent to possibly use it as a tool with my high school age Girl Scout troop, in their discussions about body image and media. I was astounded. This documentary is so very relevant to the culture that I, as a young American woman, live in. I was so very proud that someone is confronting the images and issues that girls and women are dealing with daily, in such a frank, engaging and intelligent manner. I am excited to show this documentary to my girls and discuss with them the issues brought up. Well done, artistic, well put together, sensitive, and so very relevant. The blend of personal story with cultural facts was a perfect vehicle for getting such sensitive issues into the open.
