Barbie (12A)

Thursday, September 7

Share:

Dir. Greta Gerwig, US, 2022, 114 mins. Cast. Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Will Ferrell, Emma Mackey, Kate McKinnon.

As ever, PAC is fashionably late to the Barbie party but fresh out of the box comes the most perfect film about the most perfect doll in the world! To live in Barbie Land is to be a perfect being in a perfect place. Unless you have a full-on existential crisis. Or you’re a Ken.

Eccentric and individualistic, Barbie is exiled from Barbie Land because of her imperfections. When her home world is in peril, Barbie returns with the knowledge that what makes her different also makes her stronger.

This is not the film you think it is. It is joyful, thoughtful, thought-provoking and a whole heap of pure, uncynical, life-affirming fun!

For detailed information about the film’s age rating and potential triggering contents, you can visit the BBFC website and search the film title, then scroll down to the “Content Advice” section: www.bbfc.co.uk

There is also a Bringing in Baby Screening of Barbie on Wednesday 6 September, 11am. Click here for tickets.
