As a family we usually see a movie about once a year at the movie theater. Last night we saw Inside Out together. I completely recommend this movie for families with children of all ages. Toddlers may not be able to sit through the quiet parts and there are a few scenes that may frighten them. I majored in psychology during college so I was very intrigued by the premise of this movie.
It’s basically about the emotions of a little girl as she is growing up and facing changes in her life. There are many good morals that this movie teaches about family, friends, and acceptance. The overall lesson of balance in our emotions is a lesson that we should all learn at any age.
Spoiler Alert: Do not read this part if you don’t want to know some details about the movie. As a person who loves to be happy and wants to keep others happy this movie is a wake up call to remind us that we should experience every emotion. All our emotions are connected and help us to grow. There is a time for joy and for sadness if we don’t accept both we cannot mature.
I hope you take the time to see this movie. I cried in many parts and that’s ok because sadness is important too.
