It has an indisputably worthy message, and should be essential viewing for young people.
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.
Frank body image docu advocates acceptance.
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.
At 90 minutes, the film is too long, but it is never dull, partly because it's edited with pace and humour.
Taryn Brumfitt made the Australian documentary feature Embrace with the avowed aim of persuading women to be positive about their bodies.
As a piece of storytelling, Embrace is similarly intimate and idiosyncratic. And that's what makes it so accessible.
A highly accessible and refreshingly honest Australian-made documentary, Embrace is transmitting a valuable message all women should be hearing loud and clear.
Embrace is the kind of informative, helpful film mothers might want to take their young daughters to see, and teachers might want to show their students.
A film that is at points torn between the documentary filmmaking tradition and launching a hashtag-ready movement.
Embrace is very important viewing for, literally, everyone.
Embrace is an uplifting and engaging film with plenty of guts, setting out the social parameters that constrain women of almost all ages by impossible, self imposed criteria. Good on her
