SPOTLIGHT

MANSOME

Directed by Morgan Spurlock
FEATURE DOCUMENTARY 84 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE MANSOME
Wild chops, muttons, and handlebars are not just gamey cuts of meat or motorcycle accessories anymore. They are terms in a manscaping lexicon that celebrate hairy achievements in an age when guys seem to care more about trimming their chin curtains and waxing their backs than growing chest hair. With today's men getting just as many spa treatments as women, and with a slew of new products aiming to freshen and sculpt all manly parts, does all this newfound grooming influence the age-old question of what it means to be a man, or have dudes just finally succumbed to human hygiene?

Oscar nominee Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) and executive producers Ben Silverman, Will Arnett, and Jason Bateman present a delightfully entertaining documentary exploring the current state of mandom in America and beyond. Traveling to traditional barbershops and trend-savvy salons across the country and attending an international beard contest in Austria, Spurlock shows us the art of being a man is taken to new hilarious levels. Complete with candid interviews from Arnett, Bateman, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, and lots of everyday people, Spurlock sets out to uncover the true secrets of being "mansome."
