Inside child’s mind
PIXAR has wowed audiences time and again and its latest foray, Inside Out, is sure to follow suit.
The movie – a coming of age story – follows 11-year-old Riley, who is struggling to adjust to city life after moving from the midwest with her family.
The film takes a deeper look into Riley’s mind through the five emotions of joy, fear, anger, disgust and sadness, each represented through a colourful character.
Voiced impeccably by Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling and Phyllis Smith, this team helping to shape Riley’s personality make for an almost slapstick ensemble, yet when called for there’s true depth to the performances. After changing the world of animation with Toy Story, Pixar rode a meteoric rise, crafting some of the most memorable and celebrated films of all time.
While recent sequels have fallen somewhat flat on audiences, Inside Out heralds a return to the kind of moviemaking that made Pixar into the company it is today.
Pixar, like Riley, has come of age. This review was sourced from IMDB.com.
