Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling show you the dream world directed by Greta Gerwig in the Warner Bros. Pictures Barbie biopic that appears to be more than a candy-floss fantasy. Greta Gerwig, the Oscar-nominated director, will have to tackle Barbie’s history of a lack of diversion, and though ‘it comes with a lot of baggage’, as Margot Robbie, co-producer, told British Vogue, she is taking on the Barbie shoes, ready to confront the feminist critics.

This candy-colored delight is making this summer seem more delicious than ever before, and though the movie only greets you in the theaters on July 21st, publicity, trends, and press have made sure even the ones living under a rock know.
