Pixar’s newest animated film is Inside Out, an intelligent and moving story about a young girl, Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) and her emotional journey as she deals with a traumatic move to a new city.  The movie’s other characters are Riley’s emotions:  Joy (Amy Poehler); Sadness (Phyllis Smith); Fear (Bill Hader); Anger (Lewis Black); and Disgust (Mindy Kaling).  These emotions run “Headquarters”, the place in all of us where our feelings guide us.  At first, Joy tries to keep things positive and works hard to keep the other emotions in check while Riley adjusts to her new home, but soon Sadness gets involved, and a wild adventure through the inner workings of Riley’s mind begins.   Although the many psychological references may go over young children’s heads, the film is an accurate metaphor that thoughtfully explains how emotions work in a way children can understand.  There are a few painful moments to watch, but those scenes really convey the message that it’s okay to express your feelings, even your sad feelings.  This is a great family movie that opens up many opportunities for discussion.  It is very entertaining, and I predict it will become an all-time favorite of many.

Overall Rating: A+
