WATCH I Feel Pretty, the latest film from Amy Schumer creating a stir for its controversial storyline about body confidence. Releasing this Friday (May 4), the comedy follows the story of a woman who wakes up with a newfound positive attitude to her body image following a nasty fall at a spin class. While critics have slammed Schumer for ‘fat shaming’, fans have praised her for her comedy genius to encourage body confidence. Watch it with an open mind, particularly if you enjoyed Schumer’s former funny releases, Trainwreck and Snatched.
I Feel Pretty releases in UK cinemas nationwide on May 4

READ The Order of Time by Carlo Rovelli (Penguin). Any author being dubbed “the new Stephen Hawking” by The Sunday Times is always going to pique our interest. Physicist and bestselling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics Carlo Rovelli’s new book brings together science, philosophy and art to unravel the mystery of time. His new book, which is also out in audiobook format, narrated by the brilliant Benedict Cumberbatch, has topped the non-fiction charts in Italy every week since it launched. It argues that to understand ourselves we need to reflect on time – and to understand time we need to reflect on ourselves. Deep concepts for a Monday, but definitely worth a read.
The book is out now and is available in bookshops and online. Check out https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/301539/the-order-of-time to find out more.
