Coco is a cinematic gift to Latinos worldwide and easily the best animated film of the year.
Coco is the story of young Miguel who wants to become a music legend like his hero, Ernesto de la Cruz. But there's a problem: music has been banned in Miguel's family for years, but no one will quite tell him why. When our hero (accompanied by loyal pooch Dante) accidentally finds himself stuck in the stunning and colourful Land of the Dead, he teams up with a charming trickster named Héctor (Gael García Bernal) and sets out to discover the truth.
This ode to Mexico and Día de Muertos is exquisitely full of life, and on its release quickly became the highest grossing film of all time in Mexico. Nearly everything about it is breathtaking, from its eye-popping visual splendour to its warmly beating heart. The vibrant colours, rousing music, and moving story all exuberantly celebrate the traditions, music and spirituality of Mexico and Latin America. A must-see.
