Bay Area-raised director Jennifer Phang's Sundance Jury Prize-winning film Advantageous tells the story of a futuristic corporation called The Center for Advanced Health and Living, which offers an alternative to invasive plastic surgery via a radical new technology that allows people to overcome their natural disadvantages. It's a sort of sci-fi mother-daughter story centered on Gwen Koh, a spokesperson for the company who, ultimately, has to decide whether she'll undergo the procedure herself.
Phang will be here in SF for a Q&A after a screening of the film on Sunday at the Roxie Theater, in the Big Roxie, at 9 p.m. Additionally, the film is showing in the Little Roxie, starting Friday. See showtimes here.
Also, the movie's on Netflix streaming now too.
