BEST ANIMATED FEATURE & BEST SONG
This engaging Pixar animation plays magnificently with elements of Mexican folklore and fine art. A ten-year-old boy who dreams of becoming a musician travels from his village to the Land of the Dead to find the spirit of the man he believes to be his estranged great-great grandfather, a celebrated singer. Directors Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) and Adrian Molina mine sentiment from the conflict between individual desire and familial responsibility, but their grandest achievement is the intricately designed spirit world, full of allusions to folk art and modern painting. The voice talent includes Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt. --Chicago Reader"A classic." rogerebert.com“Coco's rich visual pleasures are matched by a thoughtful narrative that takes a family-friendly -- and deeply affecting -- approach to questions of culture, family, life, and death.” Rotten TomatoesCast Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt
