Filmmaker Su Friedrich had been living with an extremely asymmetrical body for years when doctors found a 13-pound cyst in her spleen; since then she’s undergone six surgeries and been diagnosed with a serious hormonal imbalance. In this moving 2002 film, Friedrich explores the political and personal dimensions of illness and therapy with subtle but mordant humor, taking some justified swipes at the American health care system and laying bare the stress that recovery can place on an intimate relationship. 65 min.
