Last night my son & I were given the opportunity to catch a screening of Disney Pixar’s newest release BRAVE. We give it two thumbs up! The movie was amazing. It’s not a typical Princess finds her Prince story line which is what I enjoyed the most about the movie.
BRAVE is set in Scotland. The story is about a headstrong teenager who wants to create her own destiny and not abide by the laws of the land set by her parents the King & Queen. Princess Merida is not your typical princess looking for Prince Charming. On the other hand, she’s quite the opposite of what most Disney films portray. She’s determined, BRAVE, argumentative, witty and just your typical teen. She doesn’t dream of a married life and taking over the throne. While her parents have other plans for her, there in lies the distress between them. Hoping to change her mother’s ideas of finding a suitor for her, Merida meets a witch who bestows a spell for her mother. I won’t give away the movie, but its a beautifully written story that all moms can relate too. The idea that we all want the best for our children but that may not necessarily be right for them. We have to stop & listen to what they want and come to a compromise.
BRAVE hits theaters today so beat the heat & head out to an air conditioned theater with the family. This is a movie you don’t want to miss!
