Summary
This smart, sexy and funny film reveals how a flat-chested woman can find happiness and fulfillment in a world obsessed with big breasts. The film relates the personal journeys of two women: one young, one middle-aged, both of whom are considering breast augmentation. They attempt to answer the ultimate question: is bigger always better? Amusing animations, bra advertisements and sex education films enhance the witty presentation. Flatly Stacked presents the notion that flat-chested women are a subculture, a class of women who, by mere virtue of their cup size, are socially marginalized. Some rise above the emotional traumas and confusion of adolescent pressures, while others suffer emotional scarring that affects them all their lives. As one woman says: "Every girl developed breasts as part of the rite of passage to become a normal woman. But not all girls grow breasts the same way, at the same time. And that can cause problems." There are tens of thousands of women who are members of this subculture and millions more who are glad they are not. This stylish film will resonate with both groups.
