Poster for the film BARBIE


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.

After being expelled from Barbie Land for being a less than perfect-looking doll, Barbie sets off for the human world to find true happiness.

From Academy Award®-nominated writer/director Greta Gerwig (Little Women, Lady Bird) comes Barbie, starring Academy Award® nominees Margot Robbie (Bombshell, I, Tonya) and Ryan Gosling (La La LandHalf Nelson) as Barbie and Ken.

Come on Barbie, let’s go party: Head to the JBFC Blog for JBFC Mixtapes, Vol. 23: Barbie’s Block Party, a playlist sure to keep the Barbie Party going!

Barbie is a lovingly crafted blockbuster with a lot on its mind, the kind of feature that will surely benefit from repeat viewings (there is so much to see, so many jokes to catch) and is still purely entertaining even in a single watch."
Kate Erbland, Indiewire
"Thanks to Gerwig’s imagination, this Barbie is far from plastic. It’s fantastic."
Tomris Laffly, The Wrap
