Thumbelina (w/Flo Benham)
“This movie is about the patriarchy. It’s BAD.”
This week we get drunk and dive deep into the damaging effect of Thumbelina (1994).
Don Bluth’s desperate attempt to make a Disney movie goes horribly wrong, as we stumble through racial stereotypes, sexual harassment, protagonists with no agency and terrible lessons for every age group.
If you’ve been personally affected by Thumbelina, you’re not alone.
