After it debuted at Sundance, “Fed Up” had the food industry on the defensive. “Fed Up” quickly found a distributor after that debut, and it’s set to hit theaters on May 9. The trailer for the film was just released, and I’m pretty certain that after viewing it, you’ll want to see the film. I know I do. And, I’ll drag my kids with me, kicking and screaming if I have to.

If the trailer makes the film look as if it's just about sugar, that’s part of it, but there’s a lot more. Here’s a synopsis from the press materials.
Following a group of children for more than two years, director Stephanie Soechtig achieves a profound intimacy with them as they document their uphill battles to follow the conventional wisdom, 'diet and exercise', in order to live healthier, fuller lives. They are undertaking a mission impossible. In riveting interviews with the country's leading experts, Fed Up lays bare a decades-long misinformation campaign orchestrated by Big Food and aided and abetted by the U.S. Government.
Was I right? Did the trailer grab your attention and make you want to see “Fed Up?”
