Undoubtedly Margot Robbie is phenomenal as Barbie, but it is Ryan Gosling’s Ken that steals the show. He goes on his own journey of self discovery in Barbie, as he tries to learn who he is. He might stumble along the way, but ultimately he figures himself out. Ryan has indeed poured his heart and soul into this role.

What makes “Barbie Movie” particularly exceptional is its powerful message of empowerment and self-discovery. It’s a movie which is bright and full of colours on the outside and a journey of self acceptance and discovery on the inside.

This movie is teaching about valuable life lessons like self acceptance, self discovery, and learning your worth and following one’s passions.
Oh yes, another highlight of the movie is its music. Songs complements the movie and add an extra layer of enjoyment to overall experience. Tunes are catchy which will have both children and adults humming along.
