From producer Guillermo del Toro and director Jorge Gutierrez comes an animated comedy with a unique visual style. The Book of Life is the journey of Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart. Before choosing which path to follow, he embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds where he must face his greatest fears. Director Jorge Gutierrez’s film wears its affection for Mexican art and culture, English-language pop music, and animation itself on its sleeve. It like a great party—filled with wondrous decorations, interesting people, lots of fun, and a valuable message about the holiday. (2014, Jorge Gutierrez, US-Mexico, 95 min, PG)
