The Cheap Girl Contest: Make Me Young DVD Giveaway (5 Copies)

On behalf of Cinema Libre Studio, The Cheap Girl is is giving away 5 DVD copies of the documentary Make Me Young.

SYNOPSIS:

An age-obsessed daughter of a plastic surgeon takes a journey through America ’s $60 Billion a year anti-aging world. In this Alice-In-Wonderland tale, the filmmaker spends two years traveling across the country visiting doctors, experts and the lives of a cross section of characters from Minnesota to Texas who’ve gone to varying lengths to “beat the clock,” painting a funny, but troubling portrait of a country that desperately needs to stay young. Armed with wry humor, one wonders throughout this highly personal journey if the filmmaker herself hasn’t been pulled in by the obsession of youth.

Insights and bon mots from the cognoscenti of beauty includes:

*Dr. Lisa Airan, socialite dermatologist in New York ’s Upper East Side and on-camera beauty expert;
*Paula Begoun, consumer advocate and author of Don’t Go to the Beauty Counter Without Me;
*Dr. Fredric Brandt, with practices in Miami and New York , he’s been dubbed “Baron of Botox” because he is the single largest customer of Botox in the world;

*Joan Kron, the “First Lady of Plastic Surgery Journalism;”
