High expectations; that's what I had going into Disney/Pixar's latest project. Having spent the last several years putting this together and building up the goals, Pixar brought the expectations on themselves. By far their loftiest film to date, Inside Out is nothing short of stellar.
At my age you would not think a film about the inner workings of an 11 year old girl's mind would be something I would enjoy, but this film proved that wrong. Filled with heartfelt emotion and a fantastic cast, Inside Out quickly makes an impact. Right from the start you just know you are in for a treat. This is Pixar's best voice cast to date, in my opinion. Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Lewis Black, Bill Hader, and Phyllis Smith are wonderful as Riley's chief emotions: Joy, Disgust, Anger, Fear, and Sadness respectively.
The research that Pixar put into this film was both surprising and highly respectable. Not wanting to just throw something together, a lot of psychology and science went into the film. Here's a fun video that gives you a ton of facts about the movie:
This movie definitely got to me on a lot of levels. I went to see it with my parents, which made it even more of an experience. I highly recommend it whether you're single, with someone, a parent, or a child. Take the time and go see Inside Out. The Pixar short before this film is also their best one yet.
