Amy Schumer is the shit. Loud and clear. Perfect timing, clean-cut delivery, immediate chemistry and a fearless voice. And that’s only in her solo acts. Movies —be it alongside Goldie Hawn, Aidy Bryant or LeBron friggin’ James— have proven to be a vehicle she naturally steals, serving her as a platform to speak a necessary truth. In this case, self-acceptance equating to power.
Written and directed by Abby Kohn (Valentine’s Day, He’s Just Not That into You), I Feel Pretty (2018) stars Schumer as Renee, a midtown Manhattan girl whose body image keeps coming back to haunt her on a daily basis. Until one day she hits her head on a soul cycle machine and magically stars seeing herself as a supermodel.
