I recently saw this film, which I loved... This is some mature filmmaking for the family. I wrote a movie review of it for Examiner.com. Here is a part of my review:
In this latest animation from Pixar, the story takes place inside the mind of Riley (Kaitlyn Dias), an 11-year old who is uprooted from her familiar and happy Midwest life when her father gets a new job in San Francisco. Inside Riley's mind is the Headquarters, the control center of her mind, inhabited by creatures that represent each of her different emotions--Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith)--which advises Riley through everyday life. They also create new memories that appear in a shape of colorful orbs that powers different aspects of Riley's personality. As Riley struggles through adjusting to her new life and friends, Joy tries to keep things positive as negative emotions start to take over the controls. Things really go awry when the most important memories, known as "Core Memories" are accidentally sucked out of Headquarters through a memory tube into the rest of Riley's labyrinthine mind. Joy must bring back the Core Memories before Riley emotionally unravels.
