Dir: Judd Apatow | USA | 2015 | 125 mins
Cast: Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, LeBron James, Brie Larson, Colin Quinn, Vanessa Bayer
Judd Apatow (Knocked Up) directs rising US comedy star Amy Schumer (of Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer) in Trainwreck, which she also wrote. Tipped as the new Bridesmaids, Schumer’s utterly hilarious own-brand feminist comedy is directed at a version of her younger self, a journalist at a men’s magazine (edited by an almost unrecognisable Tilda Swinton) who’s enjoying single life until she finds herself falling for sports doctor Aaron (SNL’s Bill Hader). But – after a childhood that taught her to mistrust emotional attachments – she finds it hard to open up. Full of Schumer’s trademark comedy – witty, weird, with feminist overtones – it’s also very touching.
“The funniest film of the summer – outrageous and out to make you think” **** Cath Clarke, Time Out
