This weekend, Toby, Anton and I are going to see…
Apollo 10 1/2: A House Age Childhood, the brand new animated movie written and directed by Richard Linklater (of Earlier than Midnight, Boyhood, and Dazed and Confused fame). Set in 1969, the story follows a younger boy in Houston, Texas, as he will get swept up within the first moon touchdown. The NASA guys’ expressions within the trailer make me snicker, and I can’t wait to see the entire movie.
In the meantime, Pixar’s coming-of-age story Turning Pink stars Mei Lee, a 13-year-old Chinese language-Canadian lady, who finds herself turning into a large pink panda every time she will get excited or upset. Director Domee Shi — the genius behind the 8-minute movie Bao — says she needed to showcase a woman’s puberty expertise, which was a problem since no girl had ever had a solo directing credit score on a Pixar function earlier than. “How do I promote this and get outdated white males who’ve by no means skilled this earlier than enthusiastic about this and eager to see extra of it?” she requested herself earlier than a pitch assembly. Fortunately, Shi prevailed, and her movie tackles adolescence in a recent means: “It’s a facet of youth ladies that you just by no means get to see,” she instructed the NYTimes. “We’re simply as awkward and sweaty and lusty and excited as any boy.”
The Choose of the Litter isn’t new, however I do know dog-obsessed Anton will adore it. The documentary follows a litter of Labrador puppies who spend two years coaching to turn out to be Information Canines for the Blind. Will they make it? We are going to see!
