Film asks the question that has led to generations of insecure men to explore enlargement cures of dubious validity — does size matter?
Breaking Glass Pictures has signed a deal for North American rights to the phallic-fixated documentary “Unhung Hero,” the company said Thursday from the Toronto Film Festival.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The film focuses on the question of whether or not size matters. It centers on a man who finds out that his girlfriend rejected his marriage proposal because of his lack of endowment. The film follows him as he talks to ex-girlfriends, doctors, anthropologists and adult film stars about the diminutive state of the focal point of his bathing suit area.
Brian Spitz (“The Burr Effect”) directs a film he labels a cockumentary (get it?). “Unhung Hero” will enjoy a limited theatrical run in the fall, followed by a nationwide release on home video and VOD.
The film premiered at the 2013 South By Southwest Film Festival and has also played at the Traverse City Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival and Sydney’s Underground Film Festival.
