By the time girls have become women, they've been socialized to associate beauty with slenderness. In All Things Nice, filmmakers Lulu Keating and Elisabeth Belliveau all but founder themselves in an act of hilarious subversion-a contest to see who can stomach the most Cherry Blossom chocolate bars! Beneath the humour, they wordlessly proffer a more serious message. Food is not the enemy, despite the fact that women are conditioned to repress and deny themselves.

 

Also available on the compilation Forever Independent: Films by Lulu Keating. Includes:

• Lulu's Back in Town
• The Jabberwock
• Funny Things People Can Do To Themselves
• City Survival
• Ladies in Waiting
• Inside Out
