Storyline

In a society where "celebutantes" like Paris Hilton dominate newsstands and models who weigh less than 90 pounds die from malnutrition, female body image is one of the more dire problems facing today's society. "America the Beautiful" illuminates the issue by covering every base. Child models, plastic surgery, celebrity worship, airbrushed advertising, dangerous cosmetics - no rock is left unturned.

Powerful film!!
12 July 2010 | by bbtracySee all my reviews

As a person who had an eating disorder as a college student, I can only say this film was incredibly powerful for me! I am now a mother with teenage daughters and I think everyone in America should see this documentary. The first thing I did when it was over was call my daughters and tell them, "you are beautiful just the way you are." Our beauty obsessed culture is destroying the lives of women (and men) as we are seeking more and more beauty in women. When you see the effect American media had on Fiji, you cannot deny the damage it plays in our culture. This film has changed me, and I hope others, for sure. Loved it!
