A Place at The Table: One Nation. Under Fed.

“A Place at the Table” is a documentary film that examines the issue of hunger in America. The movie shows us how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications on the United States. The goal? Show that making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all. The movie is brought to you by the same team as FOOD, INC. and asks why 50 million Americans live on the brink of hunger. The movie is available in theaters, iTunes and On Demand everywhere on March 1, 2013.

Familiar names like Jeff Bridges and Tom Colicchio appear in the movie. Jeff Bridges, Academy Award–winning actor, cofounder of the End Hunger Network, and spokesperson for the No Kid Hungry Campaign, on raising awareness about hunger. Tom Colicchio, chef and executive producer of television’s Top Chef, presents his down-to-earth case to Washington for increases in child nutrition programs.

“There’s a lot of education that needs to happen around what is healthy food.”
– Tom Colicchio

Fifty million people in the U.S.—one in five children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine the issue of hunger in America through the lens of three people struggling with food insecurity: Barbie, a single Philadelphia mother who grew up in poverty and is trying to provide a better life for her two kids; Rosie, a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her and has trouble concentrating in school; and Tremonica, a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the largely empty calories her hardworking mother can afford.

Ultimately, A Place at the Table shows us how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation, and that it could be solved once and for all, if the American public decides – as they have in the past – that making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all.

Pain & Gain Movie – Trailer

Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson star in the newest Michael Bay film schedule to hit theaters on April 26, 2013. The story is based on a true story of two bodybuilders in Florida who get caught up in an extortion ring and kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong. Director Michael Bay is known for his over-the-top big budget films but Bay and the bodybuilding Bad Boys reportedly all took pay cuts for this film.

Mark Wahlberg bulked up for his role in order to hang with “The Rock” in this film. Both men are in solid shape and look hardbody, at least from this trailer. The Rock recently tweeted, “AM: Shot craziest scenes of my career. PM: Pray for forgiveness. AM: Do it all over again. #PainAndGain”.

What will the world think of a bodybuilding movie when it’s released this Spring? Only time will tell but let’s hope it inspires more people to get off the couch and hit the gym.

Stay updated with the movie on twitter, facebook and the official website.
