Pixar's latest original is cast from the classic "you're special and here's why" mold -- but when it looks this fantastic, you can't write it off. Twelve-year-old Miguel dreams of being a musician, but ever since his guitar-playing great-great-grandfather walked out on his wife, music has been banned in the family. It takes a magical guitar, a trip to underworld during the Day of the Dead, and Hector, a skeletal specter no one on Earth remembers, to help Miguel learn a thing or two about responsibility and to show his family the truth about its musical history. Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich worked with bastions of Mexican culture to give Coco an air of integrity and it shows. This isn't just a movie reveling in the eye-popping visuals of Dia de Los Muertos, but one that speaks a language, and plots a roller-coaster ride through a living, breathing heritage. The ofrenda, the holiday's ritual alter, is a centerpiece of the movie, and it's design extends to corner of Coco's imaginative alternate dimension.
