Eva Wiseman on Inside Out

Isn’t this an incredible message for the audiences of children who will watch the film, that the best way to experience true happiness is to also feel fear, and sadness, and other things their mothers tried so hard to hide? How different would this world look, it made me wonder, if women had never felt the pressure to be a “happy girl” and repress their conflicting sadnesses in that small chalk circle, and smile and “shake it off”, and always try their hardest to make things easier.

I’m still thinking about this film. I will more than likely go see it again this week.
