This is a film driven by a wonderful mother-daughter relationship and will stay long in the heart of both young and old women for years to come.
Brave sees young Princess Merida wanting her own freedoms in the midst of her controlling mother trying to guide her down a certain path. While Queen Elinor only wants the best for her daughter, Merida doesn’t see it that way! Set in glorious, meticulously constructed Scottish Highlands, Brave boasts a clever script providing comic relief at the perfect moments. There are arguments you need to have been a mother or a daughter to really get the most out of it, but Brave will has a wider appeal as it portrays a marvellous magical adventure, that’ll perhaps stand the test of time even better than some of Pixar’s movies we now call classics.
