Beyond the explosion of pink painted everywhere around the country this summer, Barbie carries a profound message that transcends the boundaries of a typical animated movie.
In a world often defined by materialism and superficiality, Barbie, at its core, is a story of self-discovery and empowerment and it invites audiences to explore themes of inner strength, compassion, and the interconnectedness of all beings.
