Coco (2017)

The other night ‘Becca’lise was telling me about a coworker who was trying to guess why Coco is making everyone cry. Seeing as the movie is about Dia de Muertos, the coworker justifiably guessed that the big, tear-jerking scene centered around the death of a prominent character. If this was any other film, they would have been right. But this is a Pixar film. They never take the easy route. Yes a beloved character dies in this film, but at least in our theater, that passing was only greeted with a brief, audible sigh from the entire audience. No tears. Because in Coco, death is not an end. As long as someone is remembered, they are never truly gone.
