Default Two Interesting Trailers

"Lbs", a drama about weight loss;

"A Matter of Size", a comedy about an Israeli sumo-wrestling club.

They both look like quality productions, intelligent and well-written - what do you guys think?

Cool

Any movie about weight loss is going to be uninteresting to me unless it is remarkably good cinematically or features salacious before scenes of attractive young women. I think the sumo movie might have some merits, but I'm pretty sure it will just be an excuse to make unfunny physical comedy at the expense of overweight boys. The former I don't find amusing and the latter I don't find interesting. All in all I think this would get a much warmer reception on the BHM board or even the main board.

How about a movie with a subplot featuring a BBW who films herself cooking and eating decadent desserts for her own paysite? I haven't seen "City Island" yet (it's still in limited release), but I'm already impressed by the fact that the director didn't follow the usual strategy of casting some starlet in a fatsuit. Instead, he found a lovely young actress named Carrie Baker Reynolds for the role -

From what I've seen of "A Matter of Size," it isn't about making cheap physical humor jokes and making fun of BHMs. I'm hope that it will show up in my area soon so I can see it. From the trailer, it reminds me a lot of "The Full Monty," just with sumo wrestling instead of stripping.

I just checked it out of the Library. My gosh she's beautiful. And I like how the sub-plot was was handled with complete acceptance. So nice.

There are at least two existing threads on Dimensions devoted to her appearance as well as the feeder son subplot in City Island.

The search function. It's a beautiful thing.
