REVIEW: FED UP
OVERVIEW: Anchor Bay Entertainment and RADiUS-TWC are proud to announce the arrival of FED UP, “the movie that will change the way people think about eating,” (Claudia Puig, USA Today) on DVD and Blu-Ray™ September 9, 2014. In her feature debut, Executive Producer Katie Couric narrates the powerful and revealing film which has sparked a national conversation about the misinformation fed to Americans by their favorite brands and restaurants. FED UP was executive produced by Laurie David (AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH) and directed by award-winning filmmaker Stephanie Soechtig (TAPPED).
After premiering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, RADiUS-TWC released the film theatrically on May 9, 2014. A box office and critical success, the film has earned over $1.4 million to date, making it one of the highest grossing documentaries of the year. Sara Stewart of the New York Post asserts, “FED UP presents a pretty watertight case that there’s something deeply wrong with the way we eat.” Los Angeles Times critic Sheri Linden raves, FED UP is “eye-opening. It pulls no punches in its informed outrage against the food industry.”
SYNOPSIS: Narrated by Katie Couric, FED UP blows the lid off everything we thought we knew about food and exercise, revealing a 30-year campaign by the food industry – aided by the U.S. government – to mislead and confuse the American public. Exposing the hidden truths contributing to one of the largest health epidemics in history, the film follows a group of families battling to lead healthier lives – and reveals why the conventional wisdom of "exercise and eat right" is not ringing true for millions of people struggling with diabetes, childhood obesity and other serious conditions. Including captivating interviews with the country's leading experts, this vital information could change the way we eat forever.
