Dr. Max Gerson claims to be able to cure cancer.
The cure? Diet. Is this documentary an infomercial or the future of medicine? You decide. The Beautiful Truth has won many awards and been featured at film festivals. Yet, we can’t help but feel that there’s something not quite right about the good doctor’s research. The Beautiful Truth follows a fifteen year old boy named Garret who has recently lost his mother to cancer. He lives with orphaned animals and feels an intense bond with these creatures. He studies diets and various organic cures for disease. When his mother dies, he turns to despair and almost fails out of school. His father decides to take him out of school and home school him back to health. The first assignment that he gives his troubled son is to study a controversial book by Dr. Max Gerson. The father knows how important finding a cure for cancer is to his son. He wants his son to think objectively and learn that there are people out there who may take advantage of you. But Garret takes the assignment deathly seriously and tracks down the dr. for an exclusive interview. A showdown, if you will. Garret’s conclusions will shock you.
