What's going on inside Riley's head?
Riley's emotions, personified as Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust, control Riley's actions, and with Joy ruling the roost, it's all happy-go-lucky for the young girl. That is until her parents uproot from their hometown of Minnesota to a new house in San Francisco. The move doesn't go as planned, and with the stress of a new city, new school and losing her old friends things go haywire inside Riley's mind, especially when Joy and Sadness get lost in the memory banks where Riley's personality is crumbling away.
The Pixar animators do a very good job of visualising a story which pretty much all takes place within a little girl's head, but it presents a good moral that we should never let our actions be decided by anger.
Once again, Disney and Pixar collaborate to bring a film which is just as likely to be enjoyed by adults as it is by youngsters, though the technicalities of the plot may go right over the heads of young children.
