Coco, the new animated movie from Pixar and Disney, is certainly a treat for the eyes. It may well contain the most dazzling animation I’ve ever seen.
Coco tells the story of young Miguel, a Mexican boy who loves the guitar and music. His hero is the legendary actor/singer Ernesto de la Cruz, who is also Miguel’s great-grandfather. Miguel is told by his family that Ernesto deserted his family for fame and fortune in the movie and music industry. For this reason, music has been forbidden in Miguel’s family. Miguel is told that he must make a choice between music and family. He can’t have both. Miguel’s family makes shoes, and he is encouraged to join in the business and leave music behind.
