The movie “Coco” is an American computer-animated film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and was released by Walt Disney Pictures in November of 2017.

The setting of the film takes place in Santa Cecilia, Mexico. The main character, 12-year -old Miguel, is an aspiring musician while his family despises music and forbids it. His great-great-grandmother Imelda was married to a man who left her and their 3-year-old daughter Coco to pursue a career in music. Sadly, he never returned and Imelda banished music from her family’s life. She started a successful shoemaking business to provide for her family on her own.

Full of adventure, colorful animation, and heartwarming connections between the characters, “Coco” is a must see. The film is full of memorable catchy music that you will find yourself humming for days. But best of all, it’s a film which discusses the holiday celebrated by many Hispanic cultures, enlightening an entire new generation of the importance of the Mexican holiday Día de Los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead.

“Coco” has won a multitude of awards, including an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film.

Though it’s meant to be a children’s film, I believe that young adults and those of all ages would enjoy it as well. It is very heartwarming, charming and powerful. If you have not already, I definitely recommend watching the movie “Coco” and would rate it 10/10.
