Make Me Young (2009)
An age-obsessed daughter of a plastic surgeon, Mitch McCabe, takes a journey through America's $60 billion a year anti-aging world. She spends 2 years traveling across America visiting doctors, experts and lives with a cross-section of characters from Minnesota to Texas who've gone to varying lengths to "beat the clock." Interwoven with these stories are the filmmaker's own self inquiry and memories of growing up around her father.
As the film chronicles the rise of the anti-aging industry through regular Americans, it hints at nostalgia for a more innocent time when plastic surgery was used primarily for reconstruction in a pre-Botox era. Her story paints a funny but troubling portrait of a country that desperately needs to stay young.
