In a groundbreaking moment for both cinema and pop culture, renowned filmmaker Greta Gerwig’s latest venture, “Barbie,” is poised to catapult her into the upper echelon of filmmakers working today. Hailed as a once-in-a-generation talent, Gerwig has crafted a visionary live-action American fantasy comedy based on the iconic Barbie fashion dolls by Mattel. The film marks the first-ever live-action adaptation following a string of successful computer-animated direct-to-video and streaming television films.
“Barbie” stars the immensely talented Margot Robbie as the eponymous Barbie, and the dashing Ryan Gosling takes on the role of Ken. The duo embarks on a remarkable journey of self-discovery after their surprising expulsion from Barbieland, setting the stage for an adventure that promises to leave audiences enchanted and inspired.
The film boasts an extraordinary ensemble cast, with the incomparable America Ferrera, the comedic genius Kate McKinnon, the versatile Michael Cera, and the young prodigy Ariana Greenblatt adding depth and charm to the cinematic experience. Joining this stellar lineup are the magnetic Issa Rae, the iconic Rhea Perlman, the venerable Helen Mirren, and the beloved Will Ferrell, ensuring that “Barbie” is brimming with talent and star power.
“Barbie catapults Gerwig into the upper echelon of filmmakers working today; a once-in-a-generation talent that is destined to become one of the greatest directors of all time.”

#Barbie was one of the greatest films I’ve ever seen 😍
It is super fun, super feminist and I could watch it on a loop
To see so much of what I think and feel captured in a movie was incredible

#Barbie was phenomenal. I can’t properly review it without spoiling it (you should see it with as little spoiled, including trailers, as possible).
But it was an unapologetically political and feminist film and the Cons can die mad about it.
