What’s the Barbie movie about?
The movie follows Barbie and Ken who are having the time of their lives in the seemingly perfect (and very pink) world of Barbie Land. However, after an existential crisis, they go on a journey of self-discovery where they realise that not everything is not all that rosy-pink after all.
The Warner Bros Pictures movie stars Margot Robbie playing Barbie (of course), and Ryan Gosling as her Ken. The movie also stars Will Ferrell, America Ferrera, Michael Cera, Kate McKinnon and Helen Mirren. The director is Greta Gerwig who directed Little Women and Lady Bird, the latter of which snapped up a whopping 13 awards.
