As second option we suggest you Beauty and the Beast. This is not the popular cartoon or the rivisited film, but a remake of the animated film dated 1991. In this latest version, Emma Watson appears absolutely perfect for the role: she symbolizes a mix between past and present at the same time. The strength of this film lies on the graphics, the special effects and the soundtrack, that perfectly reminds us to the timeless tale that has characterized our childhood.

Joy, Sadness Anger, Fear and Disgust in “Inside out” (Source: www.buzzfeed.com)

Inside out shows us a plot perhaps atypical for an animated film. Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust are the emotions of an eleven-year-old girl who is facing a difficult time for her age: the move, the new school and new friendships. Inside out allows us to discover what we have inside, the effect that our memories and our emotions have on ourselves and on people. This happens in a natural and spontaneous way, going beyond the stereotype of the classic animated film.

Inside out, Pete Docter (2015)



Ricardo Darín and Truman (Source: www.quinlan.it)

Winner of the Goya Award, Truman, is at the same time, a fun and moving comedy. A story of meetings and goodbyes, where human relationships come first. Julian, having little time left to live, wants to find a family that welcomes Truman, his beloved dog. To support him in this situation comes from Canada Tomas, his best friend. These protagonists tell something real, pure and natural that captivates the audience, involving them into the story: becoming attached to the characters has never been so simple.

Saving Mr. Banks is a funny comedy based on a true story. It is all about how Walt Disney, interpreted by Tom Hanks, gets from the Australian writer Pamela Lyndon Travers, the novel’s rights of Mary Poppins. This film displays one of the most beloved characters, in a different key, showing us the “background” that lies behind its creation.
