INSIDE OUT - RILEY'S FIRST DATE
Do you ever look at people and wonder what happens in their minds? This is exactly what brilliant Pixar film Inside Out (2015)tries to do.
Inside Out is the story of what happens in Riley's mind. Riley is 12, she leads a pretty good life with her loving parents, she plays hockey and loves Minnesota, her home state. Her life goes on quite smoothly with the help of her emotions; Joy, Fear, Sadness, Disgust, and Anger. But one day she must move to San Fransisco and once she is there Joy and Sadness disappear, which symbolizes her difficulty accepting her new life. Joy and Sadness go on a quest to return home and save Riley....
The video I've chosen for this lesson is not in the movie. It is a clip released after the great success Inside Out got both from audiences and critics all around the world.
