Body size, the final frontier, subject of ‘The Whale’


From Darren Aronofsky comes The Whale, the story of a reclusive English teacher living with severe obesity who attempts to reconnect with his estranged teenage daughter for one last chance at redemption. Starring Brendan Fraser and based on the acclaimed play by Samuel D. Hunter, the film opens December 9.

I am hoping for compassion and insight into the suffering of the obese from this movie. Here is Mr. Fraser at a recent screening of The Whale in London. Wishing him a steady return to good health.
