All of Me

Funded by: ITVS, Chicken & Egg Pictures, Fledgling Fund, Tribeca Film Institute, NYSCA

The “Girls” have been friends, and obese, for years. Their bond goes deep and wide, literally and figuratively. They are smart, intuitive, complex, warm, and compelling and speak openly about their inner lives. They’ve tried every diet and every pill.

Now they’re going through the life-changing process of weight-loss surgery in an effort to lose hundreds of pounds. The experience presents a host of issues and consequences—some they knew they were in for, some they feared, and some they never could have imagined.

All of Me touches on many of the complex aspects of being an obese person in our society today and the impact of trying to completely transform one’s way of living, coping, and relating to other people as they pursue surgery and rapid weight loss.  In weight-loss support groups around the country, the film is helping the cause of understanding the impact of obesity and the humanity of those who are trying to survive it.
