BIG IS BEAUTIFUL Thursday, April 11 – 6:30pm

English Canada Theatrical Premiere

Nina works with skinny models in the bathing suit business she founded with her attractive husband Gaspard who dislikes Nina’s plumpness. In order to help her lose weight he sends her to Brides-les-Bains, a well-known spa. Nina is not happy to go but when she arrives there she meets bubbly Sophie, a lawyer from Marseille, and Emilie, a caretaker whose weight causes her problems.
Lola Dewaere (Nina), Victoria Abril (Sophie) and Catherine Hosmalin (Emilie) are right away moving and convincing and they rock! They make up “a strong-headed, unusual team who argues and makes up at a crazy pace” (Gossy Mag).
Charlotte de Turckheim’s third feature film deals with lightness and humour with the dictatorship of physical appearance weighing on society and women in particular.
Bite heartily into this delightful, affecting comedy for relaxation and self-confidence sakes! 

“A big fat therapy of laughter!” (La Parisienne)
