Coco is a wonderful, colourful, creative evocation of the themes of family, aspirations and music which is respectful to Mexican culture.
With a top-notch voice cast and some beautiful music, there is something for all ages in this spectacular film with a fresh, subtle, charming and inspiring story and likeable and developed characters.
With songs co-written by Robert Lopez [The Book of Mormon, Avenue Q, and Frozen], there is even a witty, hip stage show put on by a deceased Frida Kahlo.
Coco shines most brightly in its vibrant palette of fluorescent greens, blues, yellows, and oranges befitting of its interesting Mexican themes.
