Overview

There's no such thing as a fountain of youth, but that doesn't stop people from trying to look as if they're not aging, and filmmaker Mitch McCabe knows this better than most people -- she's the daughter of a successful plastic surgeon who made a small fortune performing cosmetic procedures on folks willing to spend a lot of money to improve their appearance. It's estimated that Americans spend $60 billion dollars every year on various anti-aging products, ranging from simple skin creams to elaborate face lifts, and this trend doesn't seem to be slowing down one bit. But what fuels people's fears of looking their age, and what do they hope to accomplish by appearing younger than they are? McCabe examines the age-defying industry in her documentary Youth Knows No Pain, in which she combines footage of her late father speaking with patients and frank confessions of her own struggle with self-worth (and anxieties about wrinkles) to a wide variety of people who openly admit they've had work done, ranging from Sherry Mecom, a Dallas socialite who admits to spending $35,000 on plastic surgery, to Norman Deesing, an artist and actor whose face lift gave him enough of a resemblance to Jack Nicholson that he's landed minor roles impersonating the actor. Produced for the HBO premium cable network, Youth Knows No Pain also played a number of film festivals prior to its cable debut, including the 2009 Silverdocs Film Festival.
