In­side child’s mind

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

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.
