I do hope it gets aired in theatres. I don't have much expectation... it's not "flashy" enough for entertainment, unfortunately. I have a little more confidence in it being offered on TV... although, whether all the advertisers (who are going to be primarily the ones the movie is targeting) aren't terribly likely to underwrite the cost. It needs to be seen, though. Wouldn't it be nice if movies still had leaders, or matinee type things, where you got the primary movie and also some informational stuff in addition?!? oh, I'm dating myself now! LOL

We do have a great little cinema near here which offers movies for TWO BUCKS!!! How amazing is that. It's not the brand new releases, but it's usually just after the big splash ends in the regular theatres. I admit I do let myself splurge on some popcorn. But a great big bag of it, with the two tickets for the movie, came to less than $10 the last time we were there a couple weekends ago. And we saw the latest Hobbit movie. I think "Winter's Tale" is running there now. I don't know. I'll have to look it up. Nice to have some entertainment that doesn't cost $50 for two people. Heck, we could even add a meal out for that price!

Hopefully the cinemas will show it. They make millions selling you junk food, and if that stopped, they would go out of business.

I plan to go see it, if it is within 20 miles of home, just to support it. If we want low carb to spread, we have to put our money into the argument. If this makes enough money, there will be more movies, and maybe some documentaries on TV. TV sells ad time, so they put on whatever gets the rating.

Tell everyone you know about this, or better yet, take them to the movie, even if you have to pay for it. This conversation has to happen, and it is just a matter if we wait a decade, or we push it, and it happens today.

I hope it will win a price. That will help a lot.
It is interesting that some low-carb people complain that it's only about sugar. If sugar were out of the picture we'd have won most of the battle. Most carby things are not nearly as much fun if they aren't sweet.

Theatrical release is May 9, but it's been shown in at least 2 film festivals so far, Sundance and San Francisco.

I linked it from Huffington post on my FB a couple of weeks ago. It says 5/9.

I am starting my ticker again since starting low carb.

Nice trailer... but I didn't see when the entire production will be available...
I'd like to see it in its entirety.

Of course, the industry isn't going to let the average person see it, if they can help it!
And our "experts" are going to pass it off as invalid, as they always do.

C'est la vie.
At least it would be out there and available to those willing to use their brains.
I hope it's released in some accessible arena.

Wooohhhooooooo!!!!!

Make no mistake, there will be "sugar deniers" just as there are "climate change deniers" but they will ALSO be wrong and eventually they will ALSO be ignored while the people who want to do the right thing will do the right thing. And there is every bit as much corporate profit on the line here as in the energy industry - going to be a hard fight, but this is another great step on the way!

(Thank goodness that people like Katie Couric a whole lot more than they like Al Gore, lol!)

Watch the trailer... Gary Taubes is in it. The movie is called FED UP.
May change how America thinks about food.
