Movie review - "Inside Out" (2015) *****

Stunningly good Pixar movie about the adventures of a girl's subconscious - in particular the trauma she goes through when she moved. I moved cities around the same age and went through a similar thing - like so many of these Pixar films this plunged straight into my heart.

There were other tear inducing moments as well: the re-discovery (and re-loss) of an imaginary friend, realising the importance of combining sadness and joy, the different emotions in everyone's head, the way your emotions become more complex as you grow up, the loss of childhood memories.

The animation remains as superb as ever. This one has more of an all star behind the mike cast than normal but its hard to fault their work: Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, etc.
