About the Movie
When body image activist Taryn Brumfitt posted an unconventional before-and-after photo in 2013, it was seen by more than 100 million people worldwide and sparked an international media frenzy. In her forceful debut, Brumfitt continues her crusade exploring the global issue of body loathing, inspiring us to change the way we think about ourselves and feel about our bodies. Throughout her journey, she travels the world to interview an impressive range of women including talk show host Ricki Lake; Mia Freedman: the youngest ever editor of Australian Cosmopolitan; Harnaam Kaur: the bearded dame; UK talk show host/photographer Amanda de Cadenet; German actress Nora Tschirner; Professor Marika Tiggemann; body image blogger Jes Baker (a.k.a. The Militant Baker); and motivational speaker Turia Pitt.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It has an indisputably worthy message, and should be essential viewing for young people.
Fresh: At 90 minutes, the film is too long, but it is never dull, partly because it's edited with pace and humour.
Fresh: Taryn Brumfitt made the Australian documentary feature Embrace with the avowed aim of persuading women to be positive about their bodies.
Fresh: As a piece of storytelling, Embrace is similarly intimate and idiosyncratic. And that's what makes it so accessible.
This movie is extremely inspiring and has truly changed my perspective on what is important to pursue in life. Amazing!!!!
Powerful and Amazing
Glad I had a box of tissues near by. Such important questions raised by Taryn about body image. What an inspiring movie.
This film resonated with me on so many levels. I have also been on a journey to love myself and embrace my body and it is so amazing to see and be part of a global movement. Thank-you Taryn and team for getting this conversation going. A must see for all - especially for parents and their children. Let's get these thoughts imprinted from birth, rather than trying to undue damage at a later date. We will free ourselves and have so much more time to focus on life, living, love and finding solutions for other issues in the world.
