Truth! It’s funny how easily it is to judge overweight people. They are that way mostly because of trauma usually sexual abuse. So back off!
I just can't work up any empathy for characters who are the authors of their own miseries. Just get on a treadmill or something you tub of lard!
This is one of the best performance's I have seen in a long time. There was not one scripted word that did not move this amazing story of pain, love, and redemption, forward. The tears I shed were not in sadness, but loving joy and triumph. If you're looking for an amazing movie that is not the "typical" storyline, take a seat, but don't forget the Kleenex.
Brendan Fraser was fantastic in the lead role. The movie takes place almost entirely inside his apartment. Someone took great care to make sure it felt dark, dingy, and somewhat unkempt, which lent authenticity to the scenario involving a man who suffered near immobility due to his obesity. In the end, the real subject of the movie is intertwined relationships.
Love a movie that moves me.
Remarkable acting by Brendan Fraser (whoda thunk!) and he rips your heart out while you try to hang on to your disgust.
Brendan Fraser was outstanding and deserves Best Actor Oscar. The very beginning of the movie is a bit shocking but probably very realistic given the character's circumstances. The supporting cast was also very convincing in their roles- a lot of different emotions in this movie and well-deserving of the six minute standing ovation received at Cannes Film Festival. You won't be disappointed!
This is an incredible film if you can get past your own judgements. It is not a film about obesity. If you are a deep thinker and empathetic you need to watch this for the performance and the story.
Excellent and strong acting. Story conveys a message that everyone has feelings. Pros and cons about religion and we have no right to judge. Walk in my shoes for a better understanding. This film is on the dark dark side of life.
It tries to make you sympathize with fat people.
