UP (USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

UP—heartfelt, fresh, creative effort—presents the truth that sometimes promises cannot be kept until the real purpose of keeping that promise is lost forever. A well-done story that earns its Bravo! award and serves both a child and adult audience well. Thank you to Director Pete Docter for presenting a terrific piece of entertainment. The flying house concept works well.
