1752 - Brave
So I didn't know much of the story going into this, outside of it being a bit of a girl-power story. But what this film really is, at it's core, is the story about a daughter and a mother, and how they have to learn to accept and embrace one another. It's quite lovely in that, and the ending brought a bit of a tear to my eye. I have to say that I found the mother's transformation a tad quick, wherein suddenly she was won over by what her daughter wanted - but I let it go. It had all the staples of a solid pixar film - lots of laughs - lots of heart - smart and entertaining. More than happy for it to be my little guy's first theatrical experience.
