Director Darryl Roberts in the documentary, America the Beautiful, follows the rise and fall of a teenager as she enters and is ejected from the modeling world and the ups and downs of her self-esteem as she grapples with the situation.
Body image, self-esteem, and beauty are further explored through statistics and interviews covering cosmetics, cosmetic surgery, eating disorders, and other body-image issues.
Enlightening, engrossing, and often shocking, this film shows how much we are conditioned to viewing distorted, unattainable beauty images as the yardstick of female perfection and how much we all lose by uncritically accepting this perspective.
