Embrace is a 2016 Australian documentary film directed by Taryn Brumfitt. It concerns women's body image and is a response to surveys showing that 90% of women are "highly dissatisfied" with their bodies. It includes interviews with Mia Freedman, editor of the Australian Cosmopolitan and television talk-show hosts Amanda de Cadenet and Ricki Lake.
The film was rated MA15+ by the Australian Classification Board, meaning that people under 15 may only legally view or purchase it when accompanied by an adult guardian. Brumfitt has expressed outrage at this decision, which she points out puts the film into the same category as Fifty Shades of Grey. Facebook is reported to have barred the film's poster on the basis that it shows "excessive skin".
