Inside Out (U, 2015)
Director: Pierre Coffin, Kyle Balda
Cast: Diane Lane, Kyle MacLachlan, Richard Kind, Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Phyllis Smith, Mindy Kaling, Lewis Black
Inside Out takes place in two worlds: real life, where 11 year-old Riley is struggling to deal with her family’s move to the bright lights of San Francisco, and “Headquarters” – the area inside Riley’s brain controlling all of her thoughts and emotions, populated by five diverse characters.
At first, Joy is their dominant leader, but as Riley struggles to adjust to the challenges of a new city, home and school, other emotions – Anger, Fear, Disgust and Sadness – increasingly come to the fore. This hilarious, exciting adventure story shows Pixar on top form.
As well as being hugely entertaining, the film comes with an important message, helping us to understand our own emotions and face up to some of the challenges involved in growing up.
