“Barbie” became a cultural phenomenon in 2023, becoming the year’s highest-grossing film and the highest-grossing film ever directed by a woman. Greta Gerwig may have already had a devoted fanbase following “Lady Bird” and “Little Women,” but her success and impact on the industry truly exploded with her latest film. Gerwig was kind enough to spend some time talking with Ema Sasic about the film. Ema also spoke with the film’s costume designer, Jacqueline Durran. Also, Dan Bayer got to interview the film’s editor, Nick Houy, and Hair & Makeup Supervisor, Ivana Primorac. We hope you enjoy this behind-the-scenes look at the film. Please check out the film, which is now available to stream on Max and is up for your consideration in all eligible categories at this year’s Academy Awards. Thank you!
