Story:
Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) is left to care for the kids while Helen (Elastigirl) is out saving the world.

Overall Review:
14 years after the original, Brad Bird’s digitally animated superhero franchise ‘Incredibles 2’ revolves around the Parr family once again. Bird wastes no time getting into the meat of this story, cleverly picking up where the last film ended, with an attack by the villain the Underminer. The sequel offers a playful and clever reversal, asking audiences to reconsider traditional male and female roles. Hence, the story is little complex and forgetful...

Plot:
In 2002, an artistically inclined seventeen-year-old girl comes of age in Sacramento, California.

Overall Review:
Coming of age films are a risky business for film makers. There are so many but the really outstanding ones are few and far between. Multi-talented Greta Gerwig steps behind the camera for the first time as a director, dips her toe in the whirlpool and gets it right first time with ‘Lady Bird’. The film has been nominated for five Oscars at this year’s Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. Film is about Life, Love and Finding your Way...
