Plot:

In this eerily enchanting musical film by Melanie Martinez, Cry Baby, a strong and sensitive girl, is sent off to a disturbing sleepaway school that’s hidden underneath a grandiose façade. Luckily, she has a sweet and unapologetic best friend who sticks up for her when she gets bullied by the other students whose brains are under control by the Principal and his wicked staff. With the help of the magical friends they meet along the way, as well as an Angelic Spirit Guide, they are able to gain the strength they need to fight off the school’s belligerent patriarchal conditioning.

Also Known As: K-12, K-12: A film by Melanie Martinez

    K-12 is just as it says– an enchanting musical with a unique touch and wonderful aesthetic. I think people should see this film for its wonderful aesthetic and visual representation, but dont watch it expecting good writing and a plot.The musical aspects (songwriting, choreography, and singing) of the film are amazing as usual with Melanie’s work, but there are many potential plotpoints in the film itself that are just touched on once and never mentioned again. Some songs made seamless integration into the plot, for example “Wheels on the Bus”, but others appeared out of nowhere and brought nothing to the plot, like “Strawberry Shortcake”.The movie’s timeline is through the school years of Crybaby, but for most of the movie you couldnt tell at all what grade she was in at that time. Along with this, most of the characters are forgettable and dont have defining personality, but hey, at least it looks pretty!I do think that Melanie put too much on her shoulders for this film. She wrote the script, directed, was the lead actress, did all of the songs, and edited the whole thing– I applaud her for all the effort she went to make this film. For all of this being new to her, I think she did well, but I think that she should take it easy next time.The film left me a little disappointed with more questions than answers, but at least I left the cinema with 14 new bops to add to my playlist.

    This movie is a loose interpretation of a “movie” in all the best possible ways. It follows Cry Baby’s journey through school days and what happens at the school itself, with it being an overaly exaggerated and at the same time very true representation of how the american school system treats their students.This movie tackles many issues in our society and not in an overly “in your face” way that many others do. It’s enjoyable while getting a point across, something most movies cant do. It also pokes fun at itself in a sense, not taking anything too seriously with Melanie and her friends seemingly having a lot of fun with this project,The BIGGEST compliment is the directing, set desgin, and most of all, choreography. I did NOT expect this much choreography from her but wow did she really go in with the dancing. My personal favorites have to be the “The Principal” and the “Show and Tell” scenes.Overall, if you like surrealism, dark humor, fantasy, and most of all music, i’d highly recomend this movie. Couldnt recommend it enough.

    When watching this movie, suspend your expectations for a well developed plot or fully developed characters. I went into this movie expecting just that, and it was a bit disappointing. However, if you love Melanie for her music and artistry, you’ll get many doses of it. I did cringe at a few parts (cheesy acting alert!) but overall I am happy with the experience and left a bigger Melanie Martinez fan. The movie itself made the album that much more interesting. For example, my sister said “play that song with the puppet scene!”. You feel more connected to the album. The messages in the film are pretty standard “society sucks and this is why” in regard to patriarchy and suppression and objectification of women. What I like about it is that many middle schoolers and high schoolers will be able to extract those messages easily and in a relatable way.

    A amazing movie that should be praided everywhere! The songs are bangers and the massage it gives to the younger audience is heart touching! 10/10 from me!

    I just saw this with my 15 year old daughter. I’m old. Let’s not dwell.The cinema was full. The vibe was positive. The movie looks gorgeous, the pastel colours, the well framed shots and the costumes all looked amazing.I was wondering after 10 mins into the start of a bus ride , was there going to be music?O yeah. There was music. So so much music.If you like MM this will blow you away. The story based around some he’ll like school was secondary to the real story of acceptance both of yourself and others.MM and her friends share an actual super power. Not spoiling it, but do not upset them they will totally ruin you.Her songs were threaded throughout the movie, tying what really is chaos into a nightmare like vision into MM’s dark side.You will not like this movie if you treat it as a typical movie, this isn’t one. It’s 80mins of music video interspersed with scenes that may not make sense to us in reality, but do in this world.Stay past the credits to see MM working hard in the studio showing how she’s learning to dance.
