Fed Up/The Tavern Company

Unfortunately,  Blue Ruin is only playing at 9:40.  I am changing the movie to Fed Up.  

For the past 30 years, everything we thought we knew about food and exercise is dead wrong. FED UP is the film the food industry doesn't want you to see. From Katie Couric, Laurie David (Oscar winning producer of AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH) and director Stephanie Soechtig, FED UP will change the way you eat forever. 

Rotten Tomatoes: 86%

 90 minutes.

7:15 MOVIE at Cedar Lee (TBA)

Meet us in the lobby ahead of time, look for us in the theater, or catch up with us near the outer doors after the film.

9:15  DINNER/DISCUSSION at The Tavern Company    

Just a short ride or walk south on Lee Rd. 

Just in case you don't connect with the group after the film, proceed over to the restaurant and ask to sit at the "Movie Group" table.

Upending the conventional wisdom of why we gain weight and how to lose it, Fed Up unearths a dirty secret of the American food industry-far more of us get sick from what we eat than anyone has previously realized. Filmmaker Stephanie Soechtig and TV journalist Katie Couric lead us through this potent exposé that uncovers why-despite media attention, the public's fascination with appearance, and government policies to combat childhood obesity-generations of American children will now live shorter lives

Toggling between profiles of kids struggling with their weight and a wider look at the evolution of processed foods, "Fed Up" presents a pretty watertight case that there's something deeply wrong with the way we eat.  Sara StewartNew York PostTop Critic

 "Fed Up" gets to feeling like a special nightly news report. But as news reports go, it is an especially thorough and well-produced one, taking an in-depth look at America's worsening obesity epidemic and pointing fingers at culprits.

    This film investigates why the obesity rates keep going up --despite the focus on eating lower fat foods and exercising. Very interesting for me to see the connection between advertising to kids, the power of the food industry, gov't policy and the rising obesity rates. The film was interesting and thought provoking --but, it did remind me of a TV news special report. Very sad to see kids struggling with obesity.
    Susan, thanks for organizing. It was a very enjoyable evening.

    Susan - thanks for organizing. As you know, I saw Locke instead, which I thought was very good. It is an interesting relationship between the 2 movies. In Locke, the protagonist is confronting a bad situation, taking ownership of the situation, his bad acts, and his decisions, and looking for actions he can take to improve and correct matters. In FedUp there is also a strong element of people taking ownership of their diets and behaviors.
