Veteran journalist Joan Kron has spent the last 25 years of her career writing articles on cosmetic dermatology and plastic surgery at Allure magazine. At the age of 89 years old, she has set her vision to documentary film making. In her new film, Take My Nose Please, Kron’s latest project, turns a subversive look on comedy, the pressures of women to fit an ideal attractive concept, and society’s love/hate relationship with plastic surgery.
In 2014, over 15 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the United States, and 90% of those were performed on women. For many high-profile figures, plastic surgery is seen as a dirty little secret. However, comedians seem to be the exception. Take My Nose Please follows two comedians as they debate having plastic surgery. The film works with commentary from Roseanne Barr, Phyllis Diller, Joan Rivers, Judy Gold, Julie Halston, Lisa Lampanelli, Giulia Rozzi, Bill Scheft, and Adrianne Tolsh.
Take My Nose Please premieres at the 2017 Newport Beach Film Festival, Saturday April 22 at 6:00pm at the Triangle Square Cinema.
