Comment from Dr. Anita Johnston, PhD
“Wow! This documentary does an incredible job of identifying and bringing to light the invisible forces at work beneath the more obvious struggles with eating and weight disorders. With compassion, humor, and a keen eye for subtle and hidden truths, Alexandra unveils the inner and outer worlds of those living with disabling weight — revealing ironies and complexities that are more than skin deep. This is the film that can help rid our culture of the last “politically corrrect” prejudice: fatism. It is my hope that all those who ridicule others for their size and weight get to see this film.”
