source link Not gonna lie, I never do movie reviews on here, mainly because I hardly watch any movies (however I do love binge watching a Netflix series of any kind). I am also literally the only person out of my friendship group that doesn’t have a Cineworld Unlimited card! However, yesterday I watched I Feel Pretty and it is so good I thought I would do a quick review.

günlük forex stratejileri I Feel Pretty tells the story of Renee (played by Amy Schulmer) who destines in life to be pretty. Renee has it in her head that if you are pretty you get so much more of the perks in life, better jobs, better chance at boyfriends. It doesn’t help that this idea is compounded at the fact she works at a cosmetic company Lily LeClaire where she works in digital marketing it is a million miles away from the corporate offices on Fifth Avenue.

https://cryptonextlevel.com/miser/3528 Renee and her best friends (Vivian and Jane played by Busy Philips and Aidy Bryant)  join a group dating site and Renee is adamant that it is only the photograph that matters. This is then reinforced when they go on the site and found there are no matches. Renee attends Soulcycle where she is surrounded by beautiful women and starts talking to Mallory (played by Emily Ratajkowski) who Renee asks and wonders what it is like to be like her and be so pretty. Renee bangs her head at the Soulcycle class and she suddenly believes that she is beautiful even though nothing about her physical appearance has changed. This new found confidence manages to chat up Ethan at the Dry Cleaners after she wrongly assumes he is chatting her up and a job as the Receptionist at Lily Leclaire. Also after Renee knocks into a woman after a pitch for their Diffusion line (the make-up line for real women) and wrongly assumes that there would be an applicator, Avery (the boss at Lily LeClaire) decides Renee would be the perfect person for the pitch in Boston.

http://www.segway.fi/?kastoto=bin%C3%A4re-option-taktik&690=2f Renee starts to fall in the trap and becomes the person she starts to detest, she is rude to visitors to Lily LeClaire who she feels are less glamorous. When her friends go on a group date she dismisses her friends talking as she feel’s their personality is making them less attractive and ditches them to attend an exclusive party with her co-workers. It changes when Renee flies to Boston for the pitch, she bangs her head on the shower door and brings her back to her old self. Her confidence is affected so much that she doesn’t do the pitch and tries to avoid Ethan because she thinks he won’t think she is pretty.

here Renee sees Mallory, upset, at Soulcycle and finds out Mallory has been dumped. Renee cannot believe this as Mallory is so beautiful why would anyone dump her, Mallory is annoyed at this and mentions to Renee that she suffers from low self-esteem because of that. When Renee finds out that Mallory is going to the audition for the diffusion line, Renee feels that Lily LeClaire is moving away from what women want so she hijacks the launch party with a presentation that includes a collage of ‘real women’.

http://halilbalim.com/?frimol=granada-dating&48e=0d Bloody hell, that was a long synopsis! I really liked the film, it touched on a lot of important issues that do affect women today such as confidence, image and the perception of beauty. With Soulcycle making an appearance which felt like ten times in the film it did feel a bit like an advert for Soulcycle.  I did find it stupid that there would only be two people in their online department and I didn’t like the message it sent out that about quitting a marketing job that has potential (and I say that as someone who works in Digital Marketing) for a lower paid role.I know a lot of critics have panned the film saying that the subject matter needed to be tackled more seriously. But it is a comedy and I felt that the main takeaway thought you should get from it is that just to be confident in yourself (without being arrogant yourself) will just open up opportunities for you but most importantly make you feel better about yourself.

du willst mich kennenlernen sprüche My interest in foreign films started when my German teacher showed the class Run Lola Run. From then on I was hooked and developed an interest in foreign films which further developed when I moved schools for sixth form. At this school I went to European Cinema club which showed foreign films once a week. Some of those films I then brought and have watched over and over again. If you want something a bit different to view try some of my recommendations below.

Amelie

Language – French

Date of release –  2001

Amelie is a very popular french film starring the awesome Audrey Tautou and if you are going to watch any film this is the one to watch. Amelie is an only child brought up by eccentric parents. Part of her upbringing means she doesn’t have any friends and doesn’t really play with other children. Therefore she uses her imagination to fill up her time. When her mother dies in a freak accident her dad withdraws further from society. When she is 18 she leaves home and works in the Cafe des 2 Moulins taking pleasure in life’s little things such as touching fruit at the local market.

One day after the death of Princess Diana, Amelie decides to set out on a mission to make people happy. On this mission, she finds an album of full of unwanted photos taken by strangers in a photo booth (yes it is a little werid but bear with!). Amelie goes around Paris trying to find the owner who she happens to also fancy and the owner fancy her. It is an lovely independent film although a little strange- you have to go along with it!

 

Lola facing Mannie

Run Lola Run
