Is Turning Red Too Limiting?

NPR - Unsurprisingly, puberty may just be the the most relatable human experience for just about anyone. But in the case of the character of Meilin Lee in Disney and Pixar's latest film, "Turning Red", her teen angst is marred with the slight complication of turning into a red panda bear. The film, directed by Domee Shi, tells the story of Meilin (played by Rosalie Chiang), a Chinese Canadian 13-year-old, battling the ups and downs of the early 2000's with her friends, trying to please her mom (played by Sandra Oh) and crushing on her favorite boy band. And while the movie was enjoyed by many, one review posted online earlier this week have since sparked outcry. CinemaBlend's managing director Sean O'Connell wrote that he couldn't connect with the film. "By rooting 'Turning Red' very specifically in the Asian community of Toronto, the film legitimately feels like it was made for Domee Shi's friends and immediate family members. Which is fine — but also, a tad limiting in its scope," O'Connell wrote.
