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.

Barbie and Ken are having the time of their lives in the colorful and seemingly perfect world. However, when they get a chance to go to the real world, they soon discover the joys and perils of living among humans. The film follows Barbie after she is expelled from Barbieland for being less than perfect.

The fantasy comedy film was directed by feminine gaze auteur Greta Gerwig, who wrote the screenplay with Noah Baumbach. It is based on the Barbie fashion dolls by Mattel. The film is also inspired by the 1994 non-fiction book Reviving Ophelia by Mary Pipher, which accounts the effects of societal pressures on American adolescent girls. She also found inspiration in classic Technicolor musicals such as The Red Shoes and The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. The film stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling as Barbie and Ken.

The film stars a large ensemble cast which includes Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae,  Alexandra Shipp, Emma Mackey, Dua Lipa, Nicola Coughlan, Simu Liu, Scott Evans, Helen Mirren, Will Ferrell and more.
