Inside Out

Pixar’s newest entry into the canon of childhood exploration, Inside Out, plunges into the depths of the emotions that drive our lives, and how out of control they can sometimes seem. Most importantly it aims to show us that it’s okay to feel all of the feelings that make us whole. Riley – the body behind the brain – is an eleven-year-old girl who has been uprooted from her happy childhood in Minnesota and is forced to start anew in San Francisco with her family. Helping Riley navigate this life-changing event are the emotions in the headquarters of her mind – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). However, up to this point in her life, Joy has been doing all she can to keep Sadness away from Riley’s daily life.
