Two comediennes contemplate the impact of having plastic surgery.
Notable as director Kron’s debut film at the age of 89, this engaging and entertaining project uses the lens of comedy to explore societal conceptions of female beauty and the pressures many women feel to conform, often through plastic surgery. While some women try to keep their nips and tucks a secret, female comedians have long used their experiences in this area as more material for their routines. Drawing from the experiences of several comics who have had work done, or thought about it, the film primarily focuses on two appealing, funny women, Jackie Hoffman and Emily Askin, as they wrestle with the idea of getting nose jobs, or more, and how changing their appearance may affect their careers.
