All of Me

Winner at the Austin Film Festival, 2013.

All of Me chronicles "the Girls", who have been friends, and fat, for years. Their bond goes deep and wide, literally and figuratively. They are smart, intuitive, complex, warm, and compelling. They speak poignantly of a rich inner life that we rarely hear from anyone over 250 pounds. Once they were passionately involved in Size Acceptance and the BBW (Big Beautiful Women) social community. Now, one by one, they are choosing to have the gastric band or gastric bypass weight loss surgery. Losing weight is changing their lives in unexpected ways, forcing them to reckon with who they have been, who they are becoming and who loves them for precisely who they are. As they lose the pounds, will they find health, happiness and love? Directed by Alexandra Lescaze.
