    reasons to be pretty

    This incendiary drama from Neil LaBute ("Fat Pig", "The Shape of Things") asks, "How much is 'pretty' worth?" Sparked by one man's offhand remark about his girlfriend's appearance, "reasons to be pretty" navigates the crumbling relationships of four young friends as they come to terms with their unfulfilling lives and question the American obsession with physical beauty.
