Attributes: Movie Reviews

Director: Pete Docter

Cast: Amy Poehler (Joy), Mindy Kaling (Disgust), Bill Hader (Fear), Lewis Black (Anger), Phyllis Smith (Sadness)

Pixar brings to the audience a simple, heartfelt and relatable story about growing up and learning to handle emotions. The movie revolves around 11 year old Riley whose life changes a little too suddenly when she has to give up her Midwest life and move to San Francisco, courtesy her dad’s new job.

The story progresses not by means of what Riley sees, but by what she feels, the five primary emotions i.e. joy, sadness, fear, anger and disgust. These emotions, played by some fine actors, reside in Riley’s head and form an integral part of the story. We all know how challenging the process of growing up can be and the same goes for little Riley. Her emotions try and guide her through life on a daily basis, but moving to a new city leads to a struggle between Riley and her emotions. Kinda chaotic!

Joy, the most important of emotions for Riley, tries best to keep things happy. But conflicts with sadness and the other three inside Riley’s long-term memory, Imagination land, make up the main theme of the movie. The best part of the movie is how real it feels. The emotional scenes bring tears to your eyes, but the sadness is then balanced by something funny. Kudos to the timing and balancing! None of it feels forced and the emotions just sort of flow naturally…

The visuals are a simple treat to watch. The emotion characters are absolutely adorable and it’s hard to dislike even sadness. Special mention to the corridors of Riley’s long-term memory that are as fascinating as can get! Simply put, Pixar has done it yet again! This isn’t just a movie for kids. It’s impossible for adults to not find something to love about the story. It’s a special movie that’s going to leave an impression and touch upon your primary emotions. We’re sure this movie had some actual psychologists involved in the making…
