Quote:
"[Turning Red] is the rare Pixar product that actually engages with puberty in a meaningful way, even referencing menstruation, something I can't remember popping up in any previous cartoon under the Disney umbrella ('Did the red peony bloom?' Ming nervously asks when Mei first barricades herself inside the bathroom in her panda form)."
