Eric Edwards lost 210 pounds by walking a few miles in other people's shoes. In "The Weight is Over," a one-man production at Playhouse West in North Hollywood, Edwards takes the audience on his trail to lose weight. Although he consulted a personal trainer to help him slim down, Edwards' focus in "Weight" is about understanding the emotional factors that led to his triple-digit weight gain by portraying some of the influential people in his life.

A 1-mile stretch of Will Rogers State Beach was closed Friday after 10,000 gallons of raw sewage spilled into the ocean through Santa Monica Mountain Creek, authorities said. The spill was centered near Pacific Coast Highway and Chautauqua Boulevard, said Eric Edwards, acting chief environmental health specialist for the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services. The sewage was believed to have originated from the nearby Riviera Country Club, Edwards said.

The most poignant image of the beautiful but infinitely sad "Gift" (at the Sunset 5, Fridays and Saturdays at midnight) is that of a glowing, striking-looking bridal couple standing in a field.

In his "one-and-a-half" man show, "Calorically Challenged and Proud of It," the unabashedly adipose Eric Edwards takes a light approach to weighty matters: the curse of corpulence; the agony of avoirdupois; or, generally speaking, the onus of being oinky.

Steve Lustgarten's "American Taboo" (opening Friday at the AFI USA Independent Showcase at the Monica 4-Plex) is well-titled, for it deals with sexual behavior that tends to incite disapproval across all levels of U.S. society. Yet Lustgarten's $20,000 debut feature is so assured in its honesty and daring that it won the 1983 Student Academy Award for best dramatic film.
