Disfigured: The Movie

If body image is an issue for you, consider getting the movie, “disfigured.” This award-winning, entertaining, and thought-provoking feature film is about the relationship between two women from opposite ends of the scales who are forced to confront deeply-buried feelings about their bodies.

Lydia is a fat, graceful woman struggling to maintain her identity in fashionable Venice Beach, California. Though she is a member of a Fat Acceptance Group (a movement dedicated to fighting prejudice against fat people), she still struggles with complex feelings about her body and its place in the world.

Darcy, a recovering anorexic real estate agent, is struggling with the same issues from a very different perspective. Her attempt to join the Fat Acceptance Group (since she sees herself as at) is quickly rejected, but it introduces her to Lydia.

Though they seem at first to be each other’s worst nightmare, Lydia and Darcy begin to confide in each other. Meeting warily in the social minefields of hunger and satisfaction, anger and femininity, sexuality and fashion, trust and fear…they become friends.
