Finding Your Feet

I have just been to see the lovely film “Finding your feet” and adored everything about it, except for one scene.  I’m not going to give too much away, in case you haven’t seen it yet.  Suffice to say it involves our beloved darlings of the stage and screen WASTING FOOD! You can probably hear my scream as you read this.

One of the huge problems we face in tackling the food waste mountain is that we see images in the media of people wasting food as if it is absolutely fine and all the cool people do it. Years ago I am sure most of the role models in tv and in films would smoke. Not now. So maybe we need to take a look at how we portray food waste in the media?  Maybe Hollywood has bigger fish to fry right now, but I do think it is an issue that needs to be highlighted.  Do you agree?

Shortly after this lovely touching moment pictured above (from the very lovely official trailer) two of the company gathered there are scraping large amounts of food off plates into the bin.  I squirmed in my seat, but you’ll be glad to know I didn’t shout out “Get a tupperware box and pop it in the fridge for tomorrow’s lunch!”  Okay, in my head, I did…but just in my head.

Is it time we took a look at this? Is it time film makers thought about the messages they are subliminally giving us?  Aren’t they saying that food waste is an acceptable and inevitable part of today’s society. I think it is time for new messages. Do you?


Here’s the official trailer for Finding your Feet. It is a great film 🙂

One thought on “Finding Your Feet

  1. I hate this aswell especially on all the soaps. The biggest thing I see is on American films were they have food fights. How can anyone think thats a good thing to do or film. And now theres a whole generation of young kids on Youtube doing challenges .
