The hilarious new documentary Take My Nose…Please! is making its wide debut helmed by 89 year-old first time filmmaker Joan Kron (former editor at Allure Magazine for over 25 years and at New York Magazine). Take My Nose…Please! is a comedic point of view on women and plastic surgery, as told by female comedians, including Jackie Hoffman, Emily Askin, Judy Gold, Julie Halston, Lisa Lampanelli, Giulia Rozzi, and others.
The Orchard will release this award winning documentary on VOD and all digital platforms on January 9, 2018 – coinciding with the week of filmmaker Kron’s 90th Birthday.
Take My Nose…Please! has played a number of film festivals across the nation before hitting theaters this October, including the Newport Beach Film Festival, Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival, San Francisco Doc Fest, and others. Take My Nose…Please! picked up an Audience Award at the Miami Film Festival where it premiered in February, and again recently at the Berkshire Film Festival.
Take My Nose…Please! follows two comedians as they deliberate about going under the knife. Askin, an up-and coming improv performer, has always wanted her nose refined. Hoffman, a seasoned headliner on Broadway and on TV, considers herself ugly and regrets not having the nose job offered in her teens. And maybe she’d like a face-lift, as well.
As we follow their surprisingly emotional stories, we meet other who have taken the leap – or held out. Putting it all in perspective are psychologists, sociologists, the medical community, and cultural critics. And for comic relief and the profundity only comedians can supply.
The film includes commentary from Roseanne Barr, Phyllis Diller, Joan Rivers, Judy Gold, Julie Halston, Lisa Lampanelli, Giulia Rozzi, Bill Scheft, Adrianne Tolsch, and others.
