Their partners, Kens, do nothing but “beach” and act as platonic companions for the Barbies (when they want to).

In doing so, audiences will be treated to a moving exploration of what it means to grow up as a woman, from the perspective of mother and daughter.

The film is almost painfully about the struggles women face, voicing a certain exasperating frustration that seems so obvious, but for many who responded to the film, it had seems right. While Barbie is willing to wallow in self-pity and give in to existential fear, Gloria encourages Barbie to forgive herself for her mistakes and imperfections, and to express all her expectations Incredible for modern women. “It’s too difficult,” she says of femininity, “it’s too contradictory.” The stereotypical Barbie looked at her with wide eyes and Gloria’s daughter gave a surprised smile.
