Your Fat Friend 15 rating

A powerful and moving documentary exploring body image, diet culture and anti-fat bias through the life and work of Aubrey Gordon.

Biopic 2024 96 mins

Director: Jeanie Finlay



Award-winning documentary filmmaker Jeanie Finlay (Seahorse, Sound It Out) follows the journey of writer and activist Aubrey Gordon, who went from being an anonymous blogger, sharing her honest experiences of navigating life as a fat person, to a New York Times-bestselling author and podcast host. Finlay presents a wonderful and frank portrait of the inspiring and very funny Gordon, but also an essential, empathetic call for us to rethink our relationships and attitudes to the word ‘fat’, and our own bodies.

Your Fat Friend was made with the support of the BFI Doc Society Fund, awarding National Lottery funding.
