Inside Out – Hollywood Takes On Psychology

June 26th, 2015

In Pixar’s new animated movie, ‘Inside Out,’ 11-year-old Riley is just your average, hockey-loving kid, but in her mind, all of her emotions—Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust, and Anger—come to life. In Riley’s mind, her emotions control her every action, thought, and memory, so when she moves to San Francisco, the emotions have to figure out how to navigate Riley’s new house, city, and school.

Based on neuroscience and psychological research, ‘Inside Out’ shows the audience a family-friendly and fun perspective on the inside of a young girl’s mind and how every emotion has an important role in our lives. This film gives us a unique look at human behaviour, why it’s natural to feel each emotion, and see how it can affect what we do.

It’s worth seeing. Please see the trailer below for an introduction to the movie.
