Feelings About “Inside Out”

Inside Out, released on June 19 (2015) in the United States, has already captured the hearts of its many viewers. Is it too early to say it will be the animated movie of the year? Directed by Pete Docter, it stars an extremely talented cast: Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Lewis Black, and Phyllis Smith. What makes it so special (besides the amazing cast)? Well, here’s the plot. Riley, an eleven-year-old girl from Minnesota, is forced to leave her home and friends when her dad starts a company in San Francisco. As expected, Riley becomes upset. She tries to see the positive. Unfortunately, mishaps with the moving van and the drastic change in the overall atmosphere depresses her. She loves hockey, but it is not the same as it was in Minnesota. Enter the emotions. Joy, played by Amy Poehler, is a cheerful and bright individual. She creates all the happy thoughts in Riley’s mind. Joy, along with Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) try to steer Riley in the right direction. Once you meet this cluster of emotions, you will understand why things go a little awry. I do not want to spoil the movie, so I’ll just leave it at that. Inside Out contains many hilarious moments as well as lessons to be learned. Anybody at any age can take something away from this movie. Please go see it if you have not; I doubt you will regret it!
