Barbie (out July 20) is a creative Hollywood blockbuster which stands out from the pack. I’m stunned Mattel signed off on the edgy screenplay! It reminds of me a bright, colourful, entertaining Broadway musical. Using a mix of humour, dance, music, and over-the-top acting, director Greta Gerwig (Little Women) provides us with a fun two-hours where the purpose of every scene is to surprise, dazzle and entertain audiences. Grade: A-.
