Wonderful, heartfelt and believable
7 April 2013 | by zadista1See all my reviews

Anyone that has ever dealt with obesity will find a voice in this movie. The main character knows he has a problem and finds ways to deal with it. If your looking for a film that was shot in gorgeous locations, deals with the gritty and not so pretty life of an obese person, and shows the realities of fat intolerance and bigotry then this is the film for you. The twists and turns of life and the shear joy of food resonate so truthfully. No sugar coating or feel good, quick fixes thrown in for good measure. I've never been to New York, but I can tell you that the problems he deals with can be seen in "Anytown, USA" This is a must see film, not only for those that have problems with food but for those they love as well. Nothing in life is easy, except for the love of food.
