It’s Friday! Time to make plans in family and enjoy the spare time. Enjoy at the playground or take a walk around the city are good plans. It can also be time to relax at home: take the blanket and feel the coming fall on the couch. For that, is there a better plan to do than watch a family movie with your kids?
There are movies that you see with your children and you’ll love they remember them for the rest of their lives. You know why? Because they are that special, they teach us valuable lessons!
Animated movies are the kind of art that children can understand and appreciate. There is an entirely amazing genre of entertainment – animated movies you should enjoy with your kids, family and beloveds. We want to help you to build quality time with your kids.
Our recommendation for this weekend is…
Title: Inside out
What will tell to your kids:Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
Why we like it ~ Lesson: The film has some deep things to say about the nature of our emotions. Its fundamental messages about emotion are consistent with scientific research: happiness is not just about joy, don’t try to force happiness, sadness is vital to our well-being, mindfully embrace—rather than suppress—tough emotions. Inside Out has artfully opened the door to these conversations, some of the most memorable scenes in the film double as teachable moments for the classroom or dinner table.
Curiosities: Director’s inspiration for this film came from watching his own daughter go through this turbulent part of growing up. The dinner scene where Riley's mom tries to get her husband's attention came, also, from Pete Docter's own experience.
Now, grab the popcorn and settle in for a magical movie night with the family.
