America the Beautiful

A while back, I went to the documentary and discussion on the film America the Beautiful. I took the following weeks observing and reflecting on what was said, and was more aware of the judgments people pass on each other. Truthfully, I was disturbed by the film which gave a greater insight into our country’s unattainable obsession with perfection.  It’s discouraging that society expects us to look one way, when most of the time what we wish to become is either computer generated and or otherwise impossible achieve.

This documentary covers many important topics that are put aside and not discussed frequently. I would recommend this film to anyone who is having a hard time with their body image because it states that most of what we see is not reality, which is an important concept for people to know.
