Dir. Joan Kron | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2017 | 99 min.
Nobody delivers the truth like comedians. And so, who better to draw back the curtain on the often hush-hush subject of plastic surgery? Award-winning journalist Joan Kron, a first-time film director at age 89, follows two comedians as they deliberate about going under the knife. Emily Askin, an up-and-coming improv performer, has always wanted her nose refined. Jackie Hoffman, a seasoned headliner on Broadway, regrets turning down a nose job she was offered in her teens. Taking a comedic and insightful route, this film seeks to better understand how women are pressured to adhere to society’s arbitrary and often absurd standards of beauty.
“An excellent documentary that takes a subject some might
find innocuous and turns it into something marvelous.”
– Carlos deVillalvilla, Cinema365
