I really like this film because it brings out a very important message and it represents the LGBT community. It shows the viewers that it is okay to be yourself and not let others determine your path. In this film, a teenager is having a hard time becoming who they want to be because of all the people around them that tease and call them names. They are able to find their true selves in the end.

The story is about a teen that is bullied for being different. Everyone in the community laughs at them for being themselves and it's very hard for them to transition and realize that it doesn't matter what others think, the only opinion that you should care about is your own.

I like the emotion in the film and the deep feelings it shows through the beautiful animation. The expressions on the main characters' faces are very heartbreaking and made me feel sad for them.

At the beginning of the film there is a scene where the protagonist is skating on a rink with their long hair flowing as they glide along. In just four minutes we are transported to a skating rink, town, the main character bedroom, and a high school. It all fits so perfectly together like a puzzle and I really appreciate all the minute details that went into creating this so we could understand what was going through the mind of the protagonist.

The background music consists of a piano playing softly throughout the film and it carries the animation with very soothing sounds.

The animators, Gaspar Aguirre and Rom�n Sovrano, draw out the perfect storyline and give every moment thought and care. You can really tell how much effort they put into bringing this story to life.

The message is don't listen to anyone if they are causing you distress, the only opinion that matters is your own. It contains profanity but nothing drastic. Broken Doll has a really important message and I think a lot of people will find it helpful and inspiring to see it for themselves.

My favorite part of this film is when the main character finally stops caring about what everyone else thought and does what makes them happy.

I give Broken Doll 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 11 to 18. Reviewed by Winter F. and David O.
