Brave Movie Review

Set in the lush landscape and mysterious Highlands of Scotland, Brave is Pixar’s first animated film with a female heroine. Based on a story written by Brenda Chapman and Mark Andrews from their own unique family experiences, they tell a story of perseverance, love, compassion, bravery and most of all, following your dreams.

Merida, the teenaged, feisty red-haired daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor is stubborn, independent and ready to confront any tradition that could stand in the way of her destiny. The complete star of the movie and rightly so.

Merida is quite obviously “daddy’s little girl” and she and her mother don’t always see eye to eye. Merida reminds me so much of my little girl in that she is confident in who she wants to be and that she doesn’t always “fit the mold.” King Fergus is the mild, gentle soul, while Queen Elinor is the one who keeps the kingdom running smoothly.

Merida’s three little brothers are mischievous little monsters who are constantly terrorizing someone or something. They bring much laughter to the movie and with their chubby little cheeks…you just can’t help but to smile.

The movie is rated PG and does have a bit of violence and very mild adult humor. There are a few fighting scenes, animal aggression and a few bare baby bums. You obviously know your children better than anyone, and hopefully this information will help you make the correct choice on what they can and can not handle.

Overall, a wholesome, family film!

I was invited to Los Angeles as a guest of Disney and Pixar. Most of my expenses were paid and all opinions are my own.
