Critic Reviews for Embrace
It has an indisputably worthy message, and should be essential viewing for young people.
At 90 minutes, the film is too long, but it is never dull, partly because it's edited with pace and humour.
The documentary is just like Taryn -- engaging, refreshing and totally accessible. A blend of talking head interviews and honest anecdotes inform and enlighten the viewer.
Through her strong message of self-acceptance, Taryn shifts the focus of bodies and physical health to that of mental health; demonstrating that our obsession with image, especially the unattainable, is doing more damage that many may suspect.
For many, she won't be saying or offering up anything new, but what Brumfitt is doing, without the gimmickry of say That Sugar Film or Super Size Me, is highlighting how global the problem of body shaming and self-loathing has become.
