WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Neil LaBute's award-winning, stingingly witty romance about love in the modern age of body image and peer pressure tells the story of Tom, a young career guy who hits it off with Helen, a bright, sexy woman who happens to be plus-sized. As he reluctantly finds himself falling in love, Tom's colleagues are brutal in their assessment of his new mate. LaBute probes our carb-counting, extreme makeover nation by asking tough questions. How much has our relentless pursuit of beauty turned us into an uglier species?
