Another peppy and superbly rendered masterwork from animation house Pixar, pulling off their classic trick of delivering captivating colourful fun for kids along with wickedly smart insights. Here, the main action happens within the brain of an ice-hockey-obsessed tomboy, Riley, where emotions are comedically personified and thrown into conflict. It's the family move from rural Minnesota to crowded San Francisco that causes this "head trip" when the primal instincts of Joy (voiced by comedian Amy Poehler) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) are accidentally ejected from Memory HQ, leaving Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black) and Disgust (Mindy Kaling) in charge. A desperate race back to Riley's mental control centre begins - before Riley can decide to run away - with fantastic voyages through Imagination Land and the dark Subconscious via erratic Trains of Thought and on into Dreamland, where reveries are constructed in a mini movie studio. Once more the level of conceptual cleverness and ingenious visual design creates real magic.


Inside 11-year-old Riley's head lives a team of five that controls her emotions. Led by the eternally upbeat Joy, they have always ensured she lived a happy life - but when Riley's parents move to a new city, she is plunged into depression and the emotions face a crisis that threatens their entire world. Pixar animated fantasy, with the voices of Amy Poehler and Phyllis Smith.
