The new Pixar movie Coco is getting a lot of praise this month, after its release in theaters. The sweet story of a Mexican family’s journey on the day of the dead, or Dia de los Muertos is relatable to many members of the Latino community today. After watching the movie this past weekend, I have come to the conclusion that the world has never seen a cultural animated film that sweet and inspirational. Whether you were brought to tears of sadness or laughter, this movie was certainly an emotional experience. It is often being compared to the movie The Book of Life, which was also about the traditions of day of the dead, but Coco is a much more personal and dramatic representation. Watching the beautiful portrayal of a Mexican holiday was a realistic and touching experience. By the end of the movie, you will want to move to Mexico.
