I'm still kind of a blubbering mess over this movie, so bear with me.

So, I have to admit that I have a heart of stone and don't really cry over movies or TV. I didn't even cry over Up, okay? Sure, it was a super sad movie, and I felt sad while watching it, but I didn't cry.

This movie made me cry.

So I guess I will answer [personal profile] bironic's question about whether or not the movie did a good job for advocating for sadness as an emotion, and I would say that it's actually the central thesis of the movie. When the other emotions try to prevent sadness from getting a say in Riley's life, everything breaks down and the main plot begins.

What I also find interesting about the thesis is that it also feels like a statement of purpose from Pixar, that the reason their movies turn us into blubbering messes is because feeling sad, genuinely sad, is as important to us as feeling joy.
