‘I have a crazy idea, let’s be honest for a minute. No matter how many times we hear, “It’s what’s on the inside that matters,” women know deep down it’s what’s on the outside that the whole world judges.’ /Renee Barrett in I feel pretty/

What did I like about this movie?
I already loved the trailer when I saw it, because I think it discusses a very important topic about our appearance. Today’s world want women to be perfect. At work, as a mother, as a lover and we should make it look effortless. Be sporty and healthy but don’t sweat. Be the best at your job but you must have other things in your life or you will be called a workaholic. And the list goes on for a long time. I love the take-home message of this movie. That is without any spoiler to accept and love yourself no matter what.
To whom I would recommend it?
Basically to every single women on Earth. And to the men who wants to understand them.
