Pensioner Carl, along with his boy scout stowaway Russell, set off on a pilgrimage to South America’s Paradise Falls, getting there by means of Carl’s helium balloon-powered house. Also there, with his sights set on a rare bird, is ruthless explorer Charles Muntz. With its unforgettably moving opening sequence and subsequent colourful adventure, Pixar’s Up is a coming-of-age story that deals with loss and life.
