A few decades ago, most would have said animated films were strictly the realm of children.
But with Disney, Pixar, Miyazaki, and other powerhouse studios and directors on the scene, it’s become obvious that movies crafted out of drawings or computer animation can be entertaining to younger moviegoers as well as resonant and powerful to the adults accompanying them (or the adults who went by themselves, no longer an unheard-of phenomenon). From the heroic journey of Akira to Carl’s struggle to let go of his wife in “Up,” to Belle and the Beast's love story in "Beauty and the Beast," and Ari’s struggle with his loss of memory in “Waltz with Bashir,” quality animated films have arrived over the past years from all over the world and have struck a chord with many.
