Inside Out

It is not easy to understand the emotions of of children, but what if you were able to see their emotions being played out on the screen?

Directors Pete Docter (Up) and Ronaldo Del Carmen’s new film Inside Out allows us to see into the turbulent, but humorous world of the pre-teen emotional landscape.

Eleven year old girl Riley is the focus of this emotional tale and she is going through a multitude of changes in her life.

We see Riley’s rich internal life through her emotions — Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith), who live in Riley’s “headquarters” — as they try to navigate her through the tricky emotional minefield that lie ahead.

When an emotional catastrophe leads to the mixing of her emotions, memories and responses to these crises, they have the potential to lead to life-changing and significant results.
