Encanto (2021)

Magical, colourful, and full of life, in every way possible. Between the animated house and fantastic animation, the enchanting music and enchanted characters, every brick and bridge and Bruno (I won’t talk about him though) delights. Just as impressive is the nuanced family portrait at its foundations that doesn’t shy away from tragedy (see the opening and then flashback to fleeing by the river) or brokenness (“You’re the one breaking our home!”) before its beautiful build up to the end.
