Brave is the new Pixar film about Merida (Kelly Macdonald), the impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson) who is determined to carve her own path in life. Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the lords of the land, which inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom. She then turns to a crazy old Witch (Julie Walters) for help and is granted an ill-fated wish. The consequences of her wish force Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.
This movie is so cute. I really enjoyed watching it. I have a thing for female red heads. I don’t know what it is from Julianne Moore, and Julia Roberts, to Emma Stone (she’s blond now but she’ll be back to red), I just love them. And so when I saw Merida with that wild mess of red hair, I knew I would love her. I didn’t really know what to expect from the movie. The first half of it is a little misleading. It’s all about Merida and her parents trying to marry her off, but in the second of it gets to the real heart of the movie which is this mother/daughter relationship. It’s just really great to watch. I even shed a little tear towards the end. I think its great for everyone to see. Granted is it the best Pixar movie? No, but it’s still a great story with lovely characters. Check out Brave in theaters now.
