About The Film

A funny, irreverent look at the pressures on women to be attractive, TAKE MY NOSE… PLEASE! ponders the impact of plastic surgery on relationships, careers and self-esteem. Though some 15 million cosmetic procedures are performed annually in the United States, 90% on women, undergoing a nip-and-tuck remains a dark secret. Who better to dismantle such taboos than blunt-talking comediennes, from late greats like Phyllis Diller and Joan Rivers, to present-day icons Kathy Griffin and Roseanne Barr, who seek to relate women’s attitudes towards going under the knife. Beauty magazine editor-turned-filmmaker Joan Kron also speaks with Jewish comics Jackie Hoffman and Emily Askin who bemoan their ethnic noses while wrestling with whether to “de-Jewify.” Sundry experts add perspective and raise provocative questions about female empowerment, and society’s arbitrary and absurd standards of beauty.
