The documentary moviemaker who took on McDonald’s in “Super Size Me” is exploring male grooming habits in “Mansome,” a new flick that’s being billed as “an expose of comic proportions.”

Oscar and Emmy Award-nominated director/producer Morgan Spurlock’s new documentary film takes a look at men’s identity through the exploration of male grooming habits. “Mansome” made its world premiere at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival in April and will open in limited release in several major cities nationwide including New York and Los Angeles.

The movie is described as “a witty, provocative and highly-entertaining glimpse into what it means to be a man in a world where the definition of masculinity has become as diverse as a hipster’s facial hair in Williamsburg,” according to those involved in the movie and its distribution.
