Quote:
"It's new territory for a Pixar movie to make references to menstruation [...] but [Domee] Shi and screenwriter Julia Cho present a sweet, graceful ode to growing up. I watched wishing Turning Red could be watched on an enormous screen—there are scenes as lovely as any Pixar classic, particularly a fantasy sequence involving an ancient scroll—and that movies like this had been around when I was Mei's age. We've all got an inner beast, Shi reminds us, and taming it isn't too hard—as long as you have friends (and boy bands) on your side."
