Coco, A Pixar Masterpiece

The latest Pixar release is truly a masterpiece for all ages. I finally saw it today, in a sold out theater full of children, parents, and grandparents. A perfect family movie!

I loved Miguel, a young boy who dreams of being a musician even though his family strictly prohibits music. The story centers on Día de los Muertos where Miguel crosses over to the Land of the Dead and meets his ancestors. The richness of the story featuring a beautifully depicted Mexican family made my heart swell with the love I have for my former students and their families.

I won’t share any spoilers here, but the magnificent colors, themes of family and following your dreams, and music are all perfecto! Below is a link to “Remember Me” a beautiful song with a lovely message. Enjoy.
