Did you have a chance to see Pixar's animated movie 'Inside Out'? If you didn't, it is one to see. I cannot find the right words to praise this movie enough. It’s a phenomenal, touching and special piece of art beautifully made, and the story is a mind-blowing and emotional experience. It is so worth seeing and I am sure you will enjoy it a lot. I did.
The main character is Riley, an 11-year old girl, whose world is turned on its head when her parents announce they’re moving from rural Minnesota to busy San Francisco, where dad plans to start his own business. But the film is literally all about emotions, emotions in Riley's head. I said Riley is the main character but she’s actually the film’s principal location. Most of the film takes place inside her head and involves five characters who personify her emotions: Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust (you can see them below).
They stand behind a console that operates Riley’s conscious mind, each one taking charge of the levers and dials depending on how she’s feeling at that precise moment.
This film explores the psychology of a child in a unique and beautiful way. It's heartwarming and very funny at times. For me the message was quite beautiful that a memory doesn't have one emotion attached to it- it has a mixture of emotions, showcasing how unique and complex we are as individuals. It also tells us that we are allowed to feel joyful or sad etc, and that we shouldn't feel bad for feeling anything that we do because it is human to feel. Without spoiling anything there are a few scenes in the movie that may leave you with a tear in your eye.
