Frozen (Buck, Lee, 2013)

Frozen (Chris Buck & Jennifer Lee, 2013)

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.  –1 John 4:18a

This is about as close to 90s Disney as you’ll get these days. An exciting fairy tale, rich animation, and a slightly over-the-top comedic relief sidekick all molded together to bring to the screen a story that will never show its age and delight viewers for a long time. One of the most important aspects of many of these Disney (Pixar included) films is the ability to avoid the current pop culture references. Frozen takes place in its own world undiluted by the world we live in. It truly allows us to escape, which is exactly what a movie like this should do. But at the same time, when Elsa’s fear of hurting Anna leads to a lifetime of Elsa hurting Anna, or when Anna makes no hesitation in seeking out her sister when so many others consider her a danger, we see real flaws and strengths come to the forefront. It’s fun, it’s heartbreaking, and it’s joyous all wrapped as one.  7.5/10
