So sorry, but this special screening has been cancelled - we were so close to reaching the required number of pre-bookings needed to secure the Wimbledon Odeon, but it wasn't meant to be. Thank you so much for your interest and support xx

About the film ‘Embrace: one woman's journey to inspire everyBODY'
Demand.Film and ODEON are delighted to announce the exclusive UK release of EMBRACE, Taryn Brumfitt’s powerful documentary which tells the story of how she found herself at the centre of media storm after posting a candid ‘before and after’ photo online that ignited a worldwide frenzy and saw the image viewed over 100 million times.
Despite being happily married and successfully juggling motherhood while running a thriving business, Taryn was privately struggling with crippling body image issues. She contemplated drastic action, including plastic surgery, before deciding that she needed to achieve the perfect body, taking up dedicated gym training and entering bodybuilding competitions. However, even after attaining impressive abs and the supposed elusive bikini body, she was still unhappy. So she allowed her body to return to its natural shape and then took to Facebook to spread her message, posting the image that would soon be shared around the world.
In the aftermath she received over 7,000 emails from women around the world wishing to share their personal stories of body image issues. EMBRACE is told from Taryn’s point of view as she travels the globe to explore the alarming rise in body image issues seen in people of all body types, speaking to well-known personalities including Ricki Lake, Harnaam Kaur, Amanda de Cadenet, Jeffrey Madoff, Dr. Linda Bacon and Mia Freedman, experts and everyday women, as well as having her scrutinised by a cosmetic surgeon and walking one of Europe’s most prestigious red carpets to see first-hand the pressures celebrities face. The film looks at the origins of Taryn’s Body Image Movement, a positive crusade founded on the belief that everyone has the right to embrace and love their body on their own terms.
