Turning Red AI Transcript

 Growing and maturing with a twist. That's the essence of the animated feature turning red. My Lynne, the voice of Rosalie Chang is a very bright and beautiful 13 year old. She diligently follows her over-protective and at times overbearing mothers lead and always does the right thing. But one night that totally unexpected happens to my Lynne.

She turns into a large red pen. And continue is doing so every time she's overexcited, it turns out that that's not so unusual on her mother's side of the family. Indeed, her mother, her grandmother and generations before did the same. And they each went through a ritual to suppress that side of their character.

So led by her grandmother, it's determined that may Lynn will do the same. Only Malin is for the first time discovering that she doesn't want to do what her mother asks her to do all the time after all, she's now a teenager and would like to enjoy adolescent experiences with her three girlfriends in particular,, she wants to attend a concert by a boy band the same night as her ritual is due to take place. And it isn't as if she hasn't worked hard to raise the money to be there at delightful fantasy. Turning red combines the mystical and the magical with the normal rites of passage that children go through colorful and creative.

It's perfectly pitched at a young female audience. Written with Julio Cho and directed by Dommy. She who won an Oscar for best animated short in 2019, the film showcases the two sides to my lens, character, and there's a lot to like about her feistiness.

And before you think the film's preaching subversion, that's not the case, rather. It's about discovering who you are and charting your own path. It gravitates around striking a balance between following a lead and doing what you think is right. Importantly, the film is heavily steeped in girl power, but make no mistake.

All the women in my Lynn's family are strong and principled women. Fortunately, my Lynn's father also steps in occasionally to add his observations and pearls of wisdom. I thought that was a Butte touch. Turning red is entertaining and engaging throughout it's available on Disney plus and scores a seven and a half out of 10.
