Amy Poehler on ‘Inside Out’
This is one side audiences must not have seen of Amy Poehler. The actor, known for her good comic timing, always manages to break a laughter or two, but this is probably the first time she has made a thought worthy statement. Poehler, who won a Golden Globe for her role in the TV series “Parks and Recreation” got to see and work with so many emotions in her upcoming movie “Inside Out.” The Pixar movie talks about an 11-year-old girl who has to move to San Francisco with her parents and how she deals with this situation forms the rest of the story. Read on for more details.
According to Guardian, the actor who was in Sydney for the world premiere of “Inside Out” was all praises for the writer and director of the movie, Pete Docter. The director, who’s work includes “Up” and “Monster Inc.,” was praised for doing a wonderful job with the movie. Through his film, he reminded everyone how painful and difficult it is to leave behind our childhood and how our own pursuit of happiness gets in the way of growth. The actor also mentioned that it is ok to be sad and that there’s nothing to be ashamed of and what this movie has done by taking an intellectual idea and bringing it down to a connecting experience is really commendable.
Talking further about the movie, she also said that she loves the fact that joy and sadness are living side by side in the movie and the film is basically a celebration of that. She plays the role of Joy as she is joined by other emotions to help and protect the little protagonist from the fear of growing up. Docter believes that nothing really has changed children’s interest in the last 2 decades since he wrote “Toy Story.” But, he said that he wouldn’t be the right person to ask about it since as a filmmaker, he has not made the film keeping children in mind but has made it according to his own sensibilities.
