Words of Wisdom : 5 Dialogues From Barbie That Struck A Chord!

So many more, but these are out favourite!

Barbie released on the 21st of July. It’s been 10 days since and the Barbie fever is still ongoing. While it seems like a movie for young adults or kids, it’s actually for everyone. One must watch out for it witty dialogues, stupendous set and the uber-talented cast. The internet is buzzing with conversations that started because of these dialogues in the movie. America Ferrera’s monologue, even though it’s simple and straightforward, it’s impactful. There are 5 dialogues from the movie that stayed with us even long after it was over:

 

1. You are so beautiful and so smart, it kills me that you don’t think you’re good enough. 

When America Ferrera is trying to console Barbie when she is have an existential crisis, she says these words. And this rings true for women all over the world. We are made to believe that we aren’t enough. We are enough, whatever we chose to be.

2. You have to never get old, never rude, never show off, never fall down, never fail, never show fear, never get out of line. 

This is another gem from the aforementioned monologue. She is going on and on about how women are subjected to so much judgement irrespective of what they do. She strikes a chord with the audience when she says these profound words.

3. I can be emotional and logical at the same time. 

When Barbie is making a statement in the Supreme Court, she says this. It’s said plainly to indicate how people have put women into boxes. If a woman chooses yo show her emotions, they deem her illogical which is absurd.

4. We mothers stand still so our daughters can look back to see how far they have come.

This one is from Barbie’s creator, Ruth Handler who says this when Barbie isn’t able to decide where she belongs. This is such a real statement which indicates that generations of women have worked hard for women to get the opportunities they are offered today.

5. I’m just so tired of watching myself and every single woman tie herself into knots so that people will like us. 

And this hit it home, we are all guilty of adjusting to other people’s needs before even considering ours. Our mothers and aunts go out of their way to make exceptions just so that people accept them or appreciate them. It’s time to put an end to this and live life on their own terms.
