Turning Red (2022)

Friends/foes, parents/parties, studying/sneaking out, crushes/crushing embarrassment–it’s all part of the crimson-faced chaos of puberty, and it’s captured perfectly here (see the exaggerated emotion close-ups) within a refreshing cultural context and time period. Lots of cute and hilarious bits to go with the huge dramatic sweeps (red moons and rituals and multiple existential planes), weighty themes of identity and family heritage, and even a stunning gazing-out-the-car-window sigh of a scene.


    1. hey thanks! i watched it with my 6 year old and it went over pretty well! there were a few scenes that were pretty intense/frightening for her so a couple years older might be good, but overall pretty kid friendly i would say. every kid/parent is different though!
