Sara Benincasa has become a Clearing out the Clutter favorite over the last few years. She's a comedian and author, and she consistently produces material that's a terrific blend of informative, funny, and inappropriate, which we love here at Clutter Headquarters. I recently read her book, Agorafabulous!: Dispatches from my Bedroom, which details her battles with panic disorder and agoraphobia. It's a beautifully honest story. There are parts which are literally laugh out loud funny, and parts that are painfully raw, but it's all inspiring.
A few months back, Sara tweeted that she was getting ready to get naked for her new short film: The Focus Group. I immediately made a note to keep an eye out for that when it was released, and that day is finally here! In the movie (which she wrote), Sara plays a depressed woman looking to make some dramatic changes to her life, to which a friend tells her to submit herself to a focus group for review/improvement.
What follows next is funny, painfully raw, and at the end, inspiring. (I sense a theme here.) It's a great story and well worth the next 9 min 32 seconds of your life. Enjoy!
(Note: She wasn't kidding about the nudity, so proceed with caution if you're reading this at work.)
