Brie Larson is kind of an insufferable witch with a capital B. Here she is explaining that movies are for more than just a certain demographic, specifically white men. She doesn’t need to hear the opinions of a forty-year old white dude on her film a Wrinkle in Time, and needs you to know it.

To be fair, I’m not sure how many people actually saw A Wrinkle in Time. Regardless, what Brie is demonstrating here, besides how to be a stuck up bitch, is her failure to understand how art works. Keira Knightly did the same with her princess rant against Little Mermaid.
Movies are stories. Good stories are good stories across demographic and gender lines, not just to a certain target audience. Which is why I still enjoy the film The Departed as a cis-gendered white woman, and not a male mobster. It’s why Brodigan and now Steven Crowder as men can say the enjoyed Pitch Perfect, even though they’re not college sorority sisters. The appreciation of movies isn’t limited to a certain demographic, even if movies have a target demographic. Read also Dear Whiny Actresses Crying “Sexism” Over Bad Reviews: SHUT UP!
Captain Marvel, staring Brie Larson, will be released this weekend. As a superhero comic movie, I’d think the film has a target demo of teenage and young adult men. But even then, Brie Larson has said she Doesn’t Want Captain Marvel Press to Be Overwhelmingly White Male.
She may say she doesn’t hate white men, but she certainly seems to hate white men.
