I Feel Pretty - What You Need To Know

Amy Schumer leads the way in this quirky new comedy and here is everything you need to know about it...

 

Who’s in it?

Starring alongside Schumer are Michelle Williams, Rory Scovel, Emily Ratajkowski, Aidy Bryant, Busy Philipps and Sasheer Zamat.  

 

And who’s behind the camera?

Never Been Kissed/How To Be Single pair Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein are on writing and directing duty for this one.

 

What’s the plot?

Schumer plays Renee Bennett, a young woman living in New York, who is riddled with insecurity about her appearance. She works out of a basement office, she manages the website for cosmetics firm Lily LeClaire, but is desperate to work in their Fifth Avenue headquarters.

Vowing to change her appearance, she attends SoulCycle, a high-intensity spin class. During the class, she falls off her bike, hitting her head, and losing consciousness. When she wakes, she has not changed physically, but she believes herself to be astonishingly beautiful.

From then on, she pursues her life with a new found confidence, but it turns out that brings as many drawbacks as it does advantages...

 

Does it deliver?

Led by a mixture of Schumer’s charming goofiness and some excellent one-liners, I Feel Pretty is a smart comedy that also offers up plenty of food for thought.

 

I Feel Pretty is released on DVD on Monday (September 10th) and is available here to pre-order from hmv’s online store.
