Pixar's 2015 animated comedy about the five primary emotions at work in an 11-year-old girl's mind delighted audiences of all ages, won an Academy Award, and garnered praise for its scientific accuracy. "This is a movie I'm going to be assigning to many of my patients and doctoral students as a way to demonstrate important psychological principles," writes clinical psychologist Janina Scarlet in Psychology Today. Anthropomorphized Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust, and Sadness contend for control of "Headquarters," the control center of young Riley's mind. Inner and outer events drive Riley into a state of depression, but her story culminates with the recognition that even Sadness serves a positive purpose. The Washington Post praised the movie for "giving children a symbolic language with which to manage their unruliest emotions." Rated PG, recommended for prepared audiences. English SDH and Spanish subtitles. Color. 95 minutes.
