Friday and Saturday Family Matinee: Brave
Animated Feature Voices by: Emma Thompson, Kelly Macdonald, Kevin McKidd Walt Disney Pictures/Pixar Animation; Directed by Mark Andrews Rated PG; 100 minutes; 2012
This film follows the heroic journey of Merida, a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor. Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the unruly and uproarious lords of the land. Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric Witch for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her skills and resources – including her clever and mischievous triplet brothers – to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late, discovering the meaning of true bravery.
