Barry Levinson, the Academy Award-winning director of Diner and Rain Man, announced today from the Sundance Film Festival that he will direct a new documentary on America's burgeoning obesity crisis. The film is part of The Spotlight Initiative, a series of independent films with messages that make a positive difference in the world.
"The evolution of the obesity crisis in America is a fascinating and compelling human story. It's the hidden enemy within our borders that no one talks about," said Mr. Levinson.
