Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco.
Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school. Written by Pixar
Inside Out Movie Reviews
When a move to San Francisco begins to traumatize an 11 year old girl, the internal physical embodiments of sadness, fear, anger, disgust and joy intervene.
This is Pixar movie that lives up to the legacy of the name, it takes us back to the magic of films such as Up, WALL-E, and the Toy Story Trilogy. This incredible studio now contemplates neuropsychology with a visually stunning and emotionally rich comedy, which unfolds inside the head of an 11 year old girl.
From the moment this film started and the five colored emotions entered the screen I knew this was something special from Pixar. This animated feature is one of the most complex films I have seen this year. Tackling subjects such as overcoming adversity, finding your place and the power of the human spirit.
Directors Pete Docter and Ronaldo Del Carmen enable a mix of imagination, invention and wit to sink deep into the motion picture. The ability of a film to have you in laughter one minute and in tears the next continues to amaze me. Also the story has a great flow and the overall tone is sustained throughout.
The voice performances are excellent with every emotion cast perfectly from Amy Poehler's gleeful pretrial of "Joy" to Phyllis Smith's sincere embodiment of "Sadness" and everyone in-between.
Overall this film is a masterpiece from Pixar Animation Studios and it hits every note with its creativity and complexity. I am going to give Inside Out a 10/10
