The Beautiful Truth - Full Movie : English [2008]

A troubled 15-year-old boy attempting to cope with the recent death of
his mother sets out to research Dr. Max Gerson's claims of a diet that
can cure cancer as his first assignment for home-schooling in this
documentary from filmmaker Steve Kroschel (Avalanche, Dying to Have
Known). Garrett is a boy who has always been close to nature. He lives
on a reserve with a menagerie of orphaned animals, and over the years
he's become especially sensitive to the nutritional needs of the
diet-sensitive animals he's charged with caring for. When Garrett's
mother suffers a tragic and untimely death, the boy falls into a
dangerous downward spiral and nearly flunks out of school. Increasingly
concerned for Garrett's well-being and determined to strengthen their
bond despite the many challenges on the horizon, his father makes the
decision to begin home-schooling the distressed teen. Garrett's first
assignment: study a controversial book written by Dr. Max Gerson, a
physician who claims to have discovered a diet that's capable of curing
cancer. Is Dr. Gerson's therapy truly the legitimate, alternative cure
it appears to be? In order to find out the truth behind this
long-suppressed treatment, Garrett interviews not only Dr. Gerson's
family members, but various doctors, skeptics, and cancer patients as
well. His studies completed and his findings revelatory, Garrett now
sets out to tell the entire world about The Gerson Miracle.
