I do not usually talk about movies on this blog but I was sent a screening of a powerful movie called Beauty and the Breast filmed in Montreal which will be re-released in October for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
I got through the first 10 minutes before the tears started. It will be playing in Toronto at the COMMFEST in Toronto tomorrow – Friday September 13th at 5:45 pm.
This powerful documentary from actress and first time director Liliana Komorowska takes us through the journey of different woman who all have to go through the devastating diagnosis of learning they have breast cancer. The movie hopes to demystify the deadly disease and gives us intimate details and insights to the struggles of the nine different women. There is sadness, humour and so much strength in this film – it definitely opened up my eyes to the difficulties these women had to go through not only physically but mentally and emotionally too.
I’m not sure if it will be out in October in Toronto – if it is I assume it will be in limited release so if you have the chance to check it out on Friday I encourage you to do so!
