Today I felt like I needed a break from all the super-serious/intense/weird films I’ve been watching lately. So I went with something light and fun, but with a ton of heart and a great message.
When a super-smart teenager follows his older brother’s path into robotics school after his untimely death, he’s forced to confront a lot of very big feelings in some very big ways. He wants to continue his brother’s work with Baymax, a lovable (and quite large) personal health care assistant, whose only objective is making sure you feel better. But when the negative emotions overcome him, his mission gets lost in the shuffle. But he winds up discovering that life, death and puberty are confusing, challenging things that require maturity and decisiveness.
Sometimes, even when you have no rudder in the storm, all you can do is move forward. And that can be a pretty heroic thing to do.
