Barbie and Ken are having the time of their lives in the colorful and seemingly perfect world of Barbie Land. However, when they get a chance to go to the real world, they soon discover the joys and perils of living among humans.
“A blockbuster (or a doll) need not be brainless to be fun. Gerwig’s solo directing career thus far (which includes LADY BIRD and LITTLE WOMEN) is a triumph of reimagination, an exploration of what it means to find out who you are and not allow yourself to be shaped by nostalgia and sentimentality while also living with deep, real love. That she managed to infuse the same sensibilities into BARBIE is something near a miracle.” —Alissa Wilkinson, Vox
