Movie Info: 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 (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). 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 lifein 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. — (C) Pixar

Mars Review:  Given the subject matter, Inside Out is undoubtedly the bravest story that Disney-Pixar have ever tackled together.  There is joy and wonder in this marvellous mounting of a human mind, and a thrilling audacity in how it dares at such a strange and impossible thing.  Some of the complexity will probably be lost on younger viewers, but the story itself is the sweetest, saddest, happiest, powerful-est, imaginative-est and most important-est film of Pixar’s output to date.

Stars: 4 out of 5
