A Breville juicer is the unlikely co-star of a new documentary film that has won acclaim across the United States.

Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead tells the story of Joe Cross, an overweight Australian filmmaker that goes on a cross country road trip through the United States talking about obesity and health issues associated with being overweight.

As part of his personal quest to lose weight, Cross takes up juicing, in which a person only drinks juice as a way of losing weight. As it happens, Joe juicer of choice is a Breville.

Check out the trailer below for Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, which includes shots of the Breville juicer.
