From the director: Nose Job is a farce that asks the question, what if we could really do what we wanted to do when faced with constant criticism of our looks? As women, we are held to unattainable standards of beauty. In Nose Job, an actress who gets dismissed in the middle of an audition because of her unusual nose takes her revenge on the director by taking him hostage. When he suggests she get a nose job, and then repeatedly degrades her for her looks, she pulls out her gun and forces him to listen to her. Wouldn't it be great if we could all do that every time some man insults our looks? I was inspired to make this movie after I heard a director call a female background artist misshapen. We should be allowed to look how we want without judgement and without justification.
