About the Movie
"Being Ginger" is a wonderful, illuminating look into the life of the film's maker, Scott P. Harris. At first the film seems to be a comedy about a red haired man trying to find love. But through revealing moments, whimsical animation, and real interviews, a universal story arises. We are all different. We all have aspects of our lives that set us apart from the crowd and greatly affect us. In Scott's case, it's his red hair. Through captivating storytelling, we journey with Scott as he lets the viewer into his thoughts, experiences, and internal processing of how his red hair has influence over his life and how it makes him feel about himself. Finding oneself through finding love and being able to accept it can be experienced by all. So, while the film's title highlights red hair, it is about much, much more. Everyone should watch this film and reflect on what makes them 'ginger' in their own life. And, of course, give a ginger some love.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Sweet, funny and ultimately rather touching, this rudimentary record of Mr. Harris's quest to overcome the romantic barrier of his carrot top walks a wavery line between dating odyssey and meditation on the scars of the schoolyard.
Fresh: This entertaining and enlightening doc also serves as a highly effective cinematic personal ad.
Fresh: Harris is wistful, funny, and articulate about his romantic neuroses and insecurities, saying of one woman, "I was crazy about her, even though she was cruel to me."
I laughed. I cried. I was 'in it' from beginning to end. All-around, great documentary. Won't disappoint.
Quite funny, touching, heartbreaking, and insightful! Worth watching!
