Beauty & The Beast: The Ugly Face of Prejudice

After watching this emotional documentary about the vast differences between a beauty obsessed aspiring model and a man who is strongly opposed to societies obsession with looks I feel moved and inspired by one man’s life journey, strength and selflessness as he struggles with one of the worlds most extreme cases of neurofibromatosis and faces prejudice in his everyday life.
I found this film extremely moving as Reggie discusses how he didn’t leave his family home for almost 30 years due to not wanting to make other people feel uncomfortable. After finally ending his years of isolation he is now a passionate campaigner for self acceptance.
