A 12-year-old boy named Miguel is accidentally transported to the land of the dead, where he searches for his great-great-grandfather so he can return to the living.
Wow! This movie surprised me; I wish I had to gone to see it sooner. Besides setting a new bar for animation excellence, which makes this the most beautiful, awe-inspiring animated film ever, it has a sharp and compelling story with more than its share of twists and turns. Add a better than usual score (Michael Giacchino) and some excellent music and you will leave breathless.
And that ending…I’m not crying, you are!
I highly recommend this one if you can catch it before it’s gone. There are no post-credit scenes.
Flytrap rating: 9/10
