For September: Inside Out.
Animated. Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, 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.
“The film’s representative emotions illuminate the ways in which simple, fundamental feelings can have a profound impact on the way we recall particular memories and how emotions rely on one another to determine their total significance. The film also illustrates the ways in which people’s expected emotional reaction to an event and their actual response often fail to align.”
Come enjoy popcorn and interesting spiritual discussion of this movie.
