With 2015’s hit feature Trainwreck and the acclaimed series Inside Amy Schumer as part of her body of work, Amy Schumer is one of Hollywood’s most talented artists. The new comedy I Feel Pretty, while offering its share of laughs, also aims to pull at the heart strings but, more importantly, inspire confidence for people who need the proverbial kick in the butt.

Directed and penned by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, the narrative centers on Renee Bennett (Schumer), a woman who’s insecure about her looks. After an accident during a SoulCycle class, Renee sustains a head injury that actually helps her see herself as absolutely beautiful. This self-confidence leads her to pursue a job at a beauty company that’s supervised by socialite Avery LeClaire (Michelle Williams) and also positively impacts her love life.

The story centers on Emily (Schumer), a thirtysomething woman whose getting over a recent break-up (Randall Park plays her ex). She takes her mother (Hawn) on a spontaneous trip to Ecuador and what begins as a fun in the sun vacation devolves into something entirely different. The pair are kidnapped and must use their wits and survival instincts to make it through another day. The script was penned by Katie Dippold, whose successful screenwriting career includes The Heat and Ghostbusters (she’s also signed to pen The Heat 2). Jonathan Levine, the director behind the zombie comedy Warm Bodies and the Joseph Gordon-Levitt dramedy 50/50, is behind the camera.
