I have recommended this documentary to all the women and most of the men I have talked to since I saw it. I went in thinking it was just going to confirm my opinions of media manipulation but realized that I have not been immune to media suggestion, either. Bravo to the man who put this together and had the courage to be one man hoping to make change for the better. I hope its out on video by Christmas so I can give it as gifts, which it truly is to us.
America the Beautiful should be seen by all women. It is mindboggling how the beauty and clothing industry is more concerned about making money in exchange for destroying the self-esteem of girls and women with subliminal messages.It needs to be addressed and change needs to happen immediately. You will be changed forever by the information provided in the movie. As Ghandi said so eloquently, "Be the change you want to see in the world!"
