Yesterday, Victoria and I saw a great documentary at the Clay Theater called "America the Beautiful," by Darryl Roberts. It explores our current, extreme, American (and international) standards of beauty for women. Though some of the concepts were familiar to me, others weren’t, and I thought it was really well put together and powerful. The director wove a somewhat gut-wrenching narrative about a 12 year old runway model’s life journey with other facets of modern beauty, like the media perspective, the cosmetics industry, plastic surgery, and anorexia/bulimia. It was entertaining and disturbing.
