Not a movie to watch if you’re looking for a light comedy. Well
written and very well acted drama about a man who had become morbidly
obese, reflecting on his life. it’s poignant and moving and often
hard to watch, but it’s also interesting and looks at complex
interactions between complex people.
It got a lot of criticism and bad press, I think because of the “fat
suit”, but I’m just writing that off to some group having a vocal
issues with just about anything now, and somehow getting press about
it. I worked with a morbidly obese man, and saw a lot of sad parallels
with the character in the film.
