After commercial hits like Cars, Cars 2, and Monsters University – which did not yield unwavering critical acclaim – it is wonderful to note that Inside Out is a multi-layered, exquisitely rendered film that ranks right up there with WALL-E and UP.
The idea for Inside Out is that we are looking at a year in the life of eleven-year old Riley (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias) as seen from inside her mind, where her emotions take on somewhat familiar forms and interact like any group of friends – with love but also lots of ups and downs.
Things are tough for Riley – her family has moved to San Francisco and she doesn’t know anyone at school. Her dad is preoccupied with the new job and her mom is still getting things settled in their new home. Small wonder that she’s struggling a bit.
Inside Out is the story of Riley’s emotions – Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust and Fear – and how they react to this new chapter of her life.
