' Dietland ': down patriarchy

This summer, MeToo has taken American series. GLOW, Younger, or unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt have included references or patterns related to sexual harassment at work. The Handmaid's Tale connects directly to that movement without having intended it. But perhaps most radical, groundbreaking and even puzzling bet is that of Dietland, whose first season can be seen on Amazon Prime Video.

The television adaptation of homonymous novel that Sarai Walker published in 2015 cannot arrive at a more opportune time. The story follows life of Plum (Joy Nash), an obese woman obsessed with her image and try to lose weight while working answering letters of readers of magazine for teen girls who runs Kitty Montgomery (Juliana Margulies). The life of sweet, introverted and complexed Plum changes when a feminist group contacts her to try to change her vision of life, influence her so that answers she gives to young girls change and make her see that important thing is to accept herself mism Instead of obsessing about losing weight. Meanwhile, a radical feminist group that calls herself Jennifer takes law into her hand and kidnaps and kills alleged rapists and stalkers.

With a tone that, especially at beginning, is baffling by strange mixture of plots but a few chapters later finds its way, Dietland shouts loud and clear his message against Patriarchate. Through black comedy, it brings to extreme social and cultural satire to visualize tyranny that supposes expectations of ors or dictatorship of image. In times of herds and street demonstrations against court decisions, it is also easier to understand radicalization of that terrorist and vigilante group. The ensemble invites you to reflect on topics much more serious than it seems. Maybe Dietland isn't perfect, but his message is powerful and important.
